The Wine

Vineyard Profile
  • Total Size: Coeur de Roy is a proprietary name.
  • Winery Holdings: 3 ha (7.41 acres)
  • From the village of Gevrey-Chambertin. The wine is named after the family who once owned the key parcel of vineyards that go into the blend.
  • Only Pinot Noir is planted.
  • In 630, the village was named Gibriacus referring to “goat herd.” By the second half of the 13th century, Gevrey-en-Montaigne was its name. In 1574 the spelling changed to Gevrey-en-Montagne. The 1817 edit brought the village to its current name, Gevrey-Chambertin. This was the first time a Grand Cru vineyard was associated with a village name.
