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. Eight of these feature "Chambertin" somewhere in their name, in homage to the most respected among them: Chambertin Grand Cru.

The village was originally called just Gevrey, but in 1847 the parish council added the name of the most prestigious local vineyard, Le Chambertin. This started a trend that ran the length of the Côte d'Or, right down to the "Montrachets" (Puligny and Chassagne) in the south. There are now 11 Côte d'Or villages whose names refer to their most prestigious vineyard site.

The Gevrey-Chambertin appellation covers more than 2 million bottles of wine per vintage. This figure includes all premier cru wines, but not the grand cru wines, which have their own separate appellations.
