This Grand Cru from Gevrey-Chambertin, whose name comes from the French term "chaume" (an abandoned plot), is located right next to the main road. It's also close to the Mazoyères-Chambertin appellation, and they're sometimes clumped together to form the Charmes-Chambertins (plural). Mazoyères grows on a rocky soil, to the south of Charmes.
The Burgundy AOC Charmes-Chambertin produces red wines that are among the 9 Grands Crus Classés of Gevrey-Chambertin. The total surface of this vineyard is more than 15 hectares. It's located on a sunlit slope, with a very thin red soil, made of marls, pebbles and iron. The bedrock is full of crevices, allowing the vineroots to go deep underground. These roots are also very old: depending on the parcel, some of them are more than a hundred years old. Each year, 1,100 hectoliters of red wines (more than 153,000 bottles) are produced here.
