The Domaine Philippe Livera winery is on the outskirts of the village of Gevrey-Chambertin in Côte de Nuits in Burgundy. It is run by winemaker Philippe Livera and his son Damien. It is a small(ish) family estate in the northern part of the Côte d'Or. Winemaking is traditional and the wine spends varying time, depending on the appellation and on the vintage, in barrel to age and mature slowly.
Just outside the Livera house, across the street, they have a small vineyard, a 'clos', that is surrounded by a wall, almost in the centre of the village of Gevrey. (And it produces the wine that they call "Clos Village".)
They make several different wines, including village appellations as well as grands crus from chambertin or chapelle-chambertin. All, of course, made from pinot noir grapes.
