  • Terroir

    Appellation: A village appellation, Chambolle-Musigny, which produces only red wine, is often presented as the most «feminine» of the Côte de Nuits.

    Did you know ?
    Located between Clos de Vougeot and Morey-Saint-Denis, Chambolle-Musigny produces exclusively red wines.

    Soil: Limestone and stony

  • Varietals

    100% Pinot Noir

  • Vinification

    Harvest: The grapes are cut and sorted by hand.

    Vinification: The grapes are placed between 2 and 4 days in stainless steel vats for the pre-fermentation maceration. Then, alcoholic fermentation begins thanks to the use of the vat starter alone.

    Ageing: Malolactic fermentation and ageing take place in oak barrels for 8 to 12 months.

  • Tasting notes

    Its brilliant ruby robe with bright highlights reveals aromas of violets and red berries (strawberry and raspberry). When aged it develops towards spiced ripe fruit, prunes, or towards truffles, undergrowth and animal aromas. Rich and complex, its delicacy does not prevent it from having a solid, sustainable structure with caressing tannins.

  • Food pairing

    Such meats as game birds, Bresse capon or roast lamb or veal make it very good companions. Mild cheese are also excellent partners: Brillat-Savarin, Reblochon, Cîteaux, Vacherin, Brie de Meaux or Chaource.

  • Aeging and Service Temperature

    Service temperature: between 12°C and 14°C young, 14°C and 16°C when more mature.
