Chambolle-Musigny is rooted in the shallow clay and limestone soils on the easterly slopes of the Côte de Nuits, rising between 250 and 300 meters above sea level. Our Pinot Noir produced here is complex with soft tannins and a long finish. Once an adjunct to the Cîteaux Abbey, the vineyard gave its name to the village of Chambolle-Musigny, like 11 other climats throughout Côte d’Or.
Varietal: Pinot Noir
A masculine touch
With its aromas and flavors of musk, red fruits, and dry flowers underlined by notes of sandalwood and game, Chambolle-Musigny 2017 has a masculine touch. While still in development, this velvet red wine with a long finish presents a delicate and silky texture, enhanced by well-integrated tannins. It is approachable now, with great potential for aging.
A generous year
2017 began the best possible way, with a sunny and warm spring and no threats of hail or frost. Bud break happened at the beginning of April, soon followed by blooming. Summer was marked by scorching episodes, pushing maturation forward. Harvest started over the last days of August, two weeks earlier than usual, and lasted until mid-September. With healthy, ripe grapes and yields back to normal, 2017 has since proven its high-quality and long-lasting potential.
