Chambertin takes its name from a Burgonde who owned a field adjoining the Clos-de-Bèze: the property took the name of Chambertin. The winegrower was gifted and his wine excellent. Everybody spoke about the “Champs de Bertin” (Bertin’s Field) to refer to his vineyard. In the XIIIth century, Chambertin became a word used frequently in everyday language.
