Description
  • The 180 hectares of vines in the tiny village of Chambolle-Musigny are a soft interlude amongst the great vineyards of the Côte de Nuits. Chambolle-Musigny has 24 Premier Cru vineyards and it is Les Amoureuses and Les Charmes that are generally the most renowned. The poor limestone soil is well known producing wines that are delicately scented. The Burgundian term Les Charmes refers either to an uncultivated plateau with little vegetation or the existence of wooded land covered by Hornbeam. In this case it refers to the former because Chambolle-Musigny Les Charmes is located beneath Les Grandes Mûrs that has long been an uncultivated field.
