Latricières-Chambertin is a Grand Cru in the Gevrey-Chambertin division of the Côte de Nuits. Lying slightly south of Chambertin, it produces wine that stands in the shadow of Chambertin and Chambertin-Clos de Bèze. However, the efforts of a few major producers, especially legendary "boutiquery" Domaine Leroy, have indicated that this vineyard should not be overlooked for top Burgundy.

At 17.4 acres, the vineyard is smaller than Chambertin and Chambertin-Clos de Bèze, and appears to have proportionally about the same amount of wine produced—a little over 3,000 cases annually. Most producers can be trusted, and a few make truly excellent wine.


As a satellite Grand Cru, Latricières-Chambertin has a similar history to Chambertin and Chambertin-Clos de Bèze. The same AOC regulations were applied here as to the other Gevrey Grand Cru vineyards, in the year 1937.

Climate and Viticulture

The flat vineyard is fairly low in altitude, but nothing outwardly separates it from Chambertin itself. The truth is that Latricières-Chambertin boasts entirely Grand Cru-level layering of marl, clay and limestone to make Pinot Noir into an awesome wine, but there are so few producers and the "satellite" designation is so hard to overcome that the vineyard has remained obscure.

Grape Varieties

Major Producers

The Latricières appellation is fairly small, but there are a number of wineries here. All are considered good, but four have gone above and beyond to establish a special reputation for themselves.


There are no relevant Latricières-Chambertin lieux-dits due to the small size of the vineyard, so these wines should be labeled as Latricières-Chambertin only.
