About the Wine
According to Decanter, Gevrey-Chambertin has “enjoyed a preeminent place in the world of fine wine for several hundred years. These wines can be considered as holding the first rank among those of the Côte d’Or”
Gevrey-Chambertin’s wines had a special place in Napoleon Bonaparte’s heart, who “was reputed to drink a bottle of Chambertin every day.” They also have a very special place in our hearts.
Domaine Harmand is a small family-owned winery that dates to the 19th century. The estate covers about 22 acres of vineyards located in some of the greatest terroirs of Gevrey-Chambertin in the Côte-d'Or appellation. The vineyard is planted with old vines of 50 years on average, but some of them can reach over 85 years.
Since its inception, Domaine Harmand has followed traditional winemaking, where the wines shine thanks to their classic and extraordinary taste. The vineyard is managed with sustainable practices and careful and respectful viticulture.
