Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru

Pinot Noir
Description

Certain wines benefiting from a magnificent complexity and perfect structure need some years to age. The red Burgundies have a very deep colour, dense – almost black for some. They reveal aromas of rich, intense red fruit. Their tannins, being ripe and silky help give a fine harmony to the taste. Vintage 2012 portrays itself as a classic.

Winemaking
Vintage Notes: 

The wines of Chambolle-Musigny, located in the Côte de Nuits, are unique red wines that symbolize finesse and elegance… This appellation is one of the smallest and most parcelled out of the Côte with only 97 ha of Village appellation vines, 50 ha of Premiers Crus and 25 ha of Grands Crus. The terroirs of Chambolle-Musigny are rather homogenous and enjoy eastern exposure. The delicate silkiness of its wines stems directly from the soil type. Of its 22 Premiers Crus, “Les Charmes” and “Les Amoureuses” are undoubtedly the most famous.
