Domaine Philippe Livera

Chapelle-Chambertin Grand Cru

    • Description :

      Planted in the early 1950s, this Grand Cru vineyard is just 0.3 hectares and lies directly below the Clos de Bèze in the lieu-dit of Les Gemeaux. The soils of the Chapelle-Chambertin vineyard are well drained and stony with loose, limestone-rich topsoils. This forces the vines to grow deep, strong roots.
      The grapes are hand-harvested and then destemmed. Fermentation takes place in the present of native yeasts in tanks and then the wine is aged in French oak barrels (60% new oak). The wine is unfined and unfiltered before bottling.
