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, a moment of finesse before the masculin wines from Vougeot, Morey-Saint-Denis and Gevrey-Chambertin. Chambolle-Musigny is one of the smallest Côte d'Or appellations and produces mostly red wines. Chambolle-Musigny has 24 Premiers Crus vineyards in addition to its famous grand crus of Bonnes Mares and Musigny. The limestone soil is renowned for producing wines that are delicately scented and very elegant.

  • Tasting Note
    A bouquet of violets, candied cherries with a hint of earth fills the nostrils. On the palate this plump wine possesses great elegance and finesse. It should be enjoyed with cheese and meat cooked in a sauce.
