Gevrey Chambertin is the most northern of the great communes of the Côte de Nuits. Lavaux St Jacques is situated at the beginning of the split of Combe de Lavaux, which faces the south. La Combe is an ancient evacuation canal and we can notice likeness between the soil of Premier Cru and Grands Crus situated on the slope.
