Chambolle-Musigny

Chambolle-Musigny lies on the southern border of Morey-Saint-Denis. Its AOC status dates from September 1936, making it one of the first French vineyards to be designated.

Like Gevrey-Chambertin, Chambolle-Musigny is completely planted to Pinot Noir. However, the styles associated with the respective appellations present an intriguing contrast. Where Gevrey-Chambertin has a reputation for powerful, structured Pinot Noirs, Chambolle-Musigny typically offers more delicate expressions. This is not to suggest that Chambolle-Musigny is a wilting violet; rather its intensity manifests in more subtly, with soft tannins and pretty aromatics.

Chambolle-Musigny is home to two superb Grands Crus: Bonnes-Mares, which links its vineyards to those of Morey-Saint-Denis, and the great Musigny vineyard, which overlooks the Clos de Vougeot. The village also boasts among its fine wines the prestigious Premier Cru, Les Amoureuses.

The appellation’s sloping vineyards face east at altitudes of 250-300 metres with only a shallow covering of soil overlying the parent rock, but fissures in the hard Jurassic limestone allow the roots to seek nourishment deep within the sub-soil. Boulders and gravels in the valley bottom ensure good drainage.

Domaine Bouchard Pere et Fils Chambolle-Musigny 2019

Ripe, elegant and softly spicy aromas include those of various dark berries, violet, lavender and a hint of exotic tea. There is again fine volume to the caressing but punchy medium weight flavors that possess a more sophisticated texture but not necessarily better depth on the youthfully austere finale. Note that there is enough underlying material as well as supporting tannins to suggest that this should add complexity with a few years of bottle age. Allen Meadows, Burghound 89 Points ♥ O

Domaine Hubert Lignier Chambolle-Musigny Vielles Vignes 2016

The 2016 Chambolle-Musigny Vieilles Vignes comes from purchased grapes sourced from two lieux-dits: Drazy and Grammaire. It is 100% destemmed with 20% new oak. It has a seductive nose of baked black cherries, vanilla pod and hints of blue fruit that blossom immediately in the glass. The palate is well balanced with succulent ripe red cherry and cranberry fruit, a pleasant chalky texture toward the latter half with a mineral-intense finish. Excellent Neal Martin

Domaine Hubert Lignier Chambolle-Musigny Vielles Vignes 2017

A more elegant if not fresher nose reflects notes of dark cherry, earth and a touch of humus, all of which is trimmed in just enough wood to notice. As one would expect given the old vines, the medium weight flavors possess both more volume and concentration before concluding in a firm, compact and lingering finish that also flashes a touch of rusticity.

Domaine Hubert Lignier Chambolle-Musigny Vielles Vignes 2018

Produced from purchased fruit and vinified with one-third whole clusters, the 2018 Chambolle-Musigny Vieilles Vignes (négoce) bursts with aromas of raspberries, berries, woodsmoke and sweet soil tones. It's medium to full-bodied, succulent and fine-boned, with a delicate core of fruit framed by powdery tannins. William Kelley, Parker's Wine Advocate

Joseph Faiveley Chambolle Musigny 1er Cru ‘Les Charmes’ 2019

I had Faiveley's 2015 Latricières Chambertin recently, delicious, perfumed elegant and refined. Along with the 2015, I devoured a brace of 2016's from across the appellations. They are really stepping up their game, the investments in the vineyard and winery are a testament to this.

Domaine de la Pousse d’Or Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru ‘Les Groseilles’ 2019

"This is aromatically similar to the Feusselottes if perhaps just a bit spicier. The generously proportioned, round and quite seductively textured flavors possess fine intensity and a sophisticated mouthfeel while exhibiting excellent depth and persistence on the balanced finale. Drink: 2031+ Oustanding ♥" Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé Grand Cru ‘Bonnes-Mares’ 2017

A very ripe yet agreeably fresh nose reflects notes of blue berry, plum liqueur and violet that are cut with spice and earth hints. The exceptionally rich and impressively full-bodied flavors evidence a taut muscularity, all wrapped in an overtly powerful and lingering finish that is naturally sweet. As one would reasonably expect this is quite firm but the 2017 version appears to be a bit less structured than it usually is. 2029+. Burghound

Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé Grand Cru ‘Musigny’ Vielles Vignes 2017

The 2017 Musigny Vieilles Vignes Grand Cru is complex and well defined on the nose, where touches of iodine and wild heather infuse the black fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with a slightly grainy texture; notes of black truffle and fresh fig complement a fruit profile that welcomes more red fruit toward the finish. Hints of white pepper and sage linger on the aftertaste. This is certainly beginning to close up in bottle, so allow a decade if you can for this Musigny to show what it is capabl

Denis Mortet Grand Cru ‘Bonnes Mares’ 2018

This comes from two parcels (that used to belong to Domaine Newman) totaling 35 ares (0.35 of a hectare). The vines are 60 years old and the lion's share is rooted in the terres blanches soils at the heart of the vineyard, with a smaller millerandée parcel closer to the village. Mortet has replanted 600 vines and this, coupled with his low yields, means that he has only three (Cavin Aphrodite) barrels to sell. This is a wonderful example--a darker, and deeper wine than the Mazis, with black che
