Griotte-Chambertin (Grand Cru): It takes it's name from the texture of the soil, because it was planted in a small depression composed of small rocks of chalk ("craie"in french). In time the french language has turned craie into criot, then criotte and finally became Griotte. The hypothesis that it used to be a field of cherries has neither been proven or misproven.
