The village of Gevrey-Chambertin is located in the heart of the Côte de Nuits, between Dijon and Nuits-Saint-Georges. Vineyards have a perfect exposure to the east, thus giving it the potential to produce excellent wines. The complex soils are composed of limestone, clay and marl, silt and scree. The 1er Cru Clos Prieur is located in the heart of the appellation, just opposite of the Grand Cru Mazis-Chambertin.
