Chambolle-Musigny

Chambolle-Musigny

Even the name has a musical ring to it.  This is one of the most gorgeous appellations of the Côte d’Or in Burgundy; within its confines are some beautiful Grand Cru vineyards and the pretty village of Chambolle sits in the middle of its top crus (there are 2 Grand Cru climats, Bonnes-Mares and Musigny here as well as 24 Premier Grand Cru climats).  The appellation covers over 152 hectares of vines, of which 55 hectares are Premier Cru. It produces red wines from the Pinot Noir grape.

The vineyards faces east at altitudes of 250-300 metres.  There is a small amount of clay topsoil over the hard Jurassic limestone.  At the bottom of the slopes there are more rocks and gravels in the soil.   The wines of Chambolle are considered the most “feminine” of the Côte de Nuits; they have intensity balanced by delicacy and an abiding elegance.   Their characteristic aromas are violets and small red fruits (raspberry, strawberry).  Secondary aromas include spice, truffles, licorice and cinnamon.  What also distinguishes Chambolle is its freshness and fragrance and its suave, round texture with very smooth tannins. 

Chambolle wines pair well with roast chicken and veal as well as aromatic cheeses.  The wines can be enjoyed young or for a decade.

    In the hands of Etienne Grivot this climat always manages to combine the charming primary fruit of Chambolle with a rich and dense body. Very precise and structured on the palate with floral and mineral nose. This vintage will keep well.

    This small 60 ares parcel is Grivot’s only Chambolle and lies on the border between Vosne and Chambolle between Musigny and Clos de Vougeot. The stony soil here gives a finely grained wine with lots of perfume and floral notes. Underneath the aromas the wine is juicy, with dark autumn fruit flavours, a touch of pepper and spice and a pleasing, balanced finish. This charming wine should be ready to drink in a couple more years.

    We houden van de geparfumeerde kant van dit klimaat van 60 hectare dat de enige Chambolle van Grivot is en aan de grenzen van Vosne, Chambolle, Musigny en Clos de Vougeot ligt. De steenachtige grond geeft de wijn een zeer verfijnde korrel met overvloedige geuren en bloemige tonen. Aangezien de wijngaard hoog genoeg ligt, heeft de koele bries de hitte van 2015 sterk vervaagd en we houden van de aroma’s van wilde aardbei, viooltjes, pioenrozen en kleine rode bessen in deze wijn met een uitstekende precisie.
