Chambolle-Musigny

2017

This wine is the result of a blend of five different blocks all located at the top of Chambolle’s slopes. They have of a north-east exposition which allows them to benefit from nice sunshine. The soil is made of clay and limestone and is very rocky, which confers to the wine this mineral caracteristic of the appellation. The average age of the vines here is 45 years old. Total holdings, 1.85 hectares. Vinified with 70% whole clusters, aged in 10% new oak.

"The 2017 Chambolle-Musigny Village comes from north-facing vineyards toward the upper slopes – the last vines to ripen, as they can lie in the shade. Containing 80% whole bunch fruit, it has a well-defined, slightly tertiary bouquet with touches of black pepper and pencil lead. The medium-bodied palate presents fresh red fruit, lightly spiced with white pepper, sage and a touch of tobacco, perhaps a little Morey-like in structure, but with a very long finish. Excellent."
