Gevrey-Chambertin is the largest communal appellation contrôlée in the Côte Nuits in Burgundy. It is in the northern part of the Côte d’Or. The village Gevrey has added (as many other villages have) the name of the most famous vineyard to its name, Chambertin, creating the name Gevrey-Chambertin.

The vineyard area in Gevrey-Chambertin is just over 400 hectares (commune and premier cru). The grapes planted are the classic Bourgogne vines: pinot noir, for the red wines, and chardonnay for the white wines, of which there is little. Actually, there is no white Gevrey Chambertin at all since the appellation is red-only. There may be a few white vines in the vineyard, but either they are mixed in with the red wine or declassified to Burgundy. The soil is primarily limestone, gravel and clay.

There are several premier cru vineyards in Gevrey. Some of the most famous are Lavaux Saint-Jacques, Champeaux and Clos St Jacques. In total there are some 80 hectares of premier cru vineyards. there are nine grand cru vineyards (each with its own appellation) in Gevrey: Chambertin, Chambertin Clos de Bèze, Charmes-Chambertin, Mazoyères Chambertin, Chapelle Chambertin, Griottes Chambertin, Latricières Chambertin, Mazis Chambertin and Ruchottes Chambertin. the grand cru vineyards cover 55 ha.
