Gevrey-Chambertin – a village in Burgundy's Côte de Nuits district – produces some of the world's most prestigious and expensive red wines. The village is home to nine grand cru vineyards, comfortably more than any other Burgundy village (the nearest contender is Vosne-Romanée). Eight of these feature "Chambertin" somewhere in their name, in homage to the most respected among them: Le Chambertin.

Although the grand cru wines attract the most attention, those made under the village's standard Gevrey-Chambertin appellation are held in very high regard. Just like their big grand cru brothers, all Gevrey-Chambertin wines are made almost exclusively from Pinot Noir. Widely regarded as being Burgundy's most full-bodied and structured, the village's wines have a particular intensity of color, aroma and flavor about them, not to mention impressive longevity. Well-made examples can develop in the bottle for several decades. These qualities, combined with the village's solid reputation and relatively large production volumes, have earned Gevrey-Chambertin a reputation as the "king" of Burgundy wines
