The small village of Chambolle-Musigny is located at the heart of the Côte de Nuits, between Vougeot and Morey-Saint-Denis. Its name is derived from that of an ancient Celtic village, “Cambola”. Pinot Noir is planted exclusively in this small appellation, which is one of the jewels of the Côte and part of Burgundy’s viticultural heritage. The vineyard is based at the mouth of a valley. The clay content of the soil is inferior to the other villages, which could partly explain the “femininity” frequently pointed out in Chambolle’s wines.
The nose is ethereal and delicate, redolent of black cherry with discrete, elegant floral notes of rose and violet. Very soft on the palate, it offers well-balanced structure and bold, yet fine, smooth tannins. Lovely intense, fruity finish.
