CHAMBOLLE-MUSIGNY

The 'Prima Ballerina' of Burgundy
8 Beauties on Sale to Drink Now or Cellar


Since Roman times, the ancient Celtic village of Cambola (which became Chambolle, and then Chambolle-Musigny by adding the name of its most famous Grand Cru vineyard) has been highly regarded for its wines made of the Pinot Noir grape. During the Middle-Ages in Burgundy, the monks perfected the art of viticulture, and cemented the region's illustrious history. Coming from the central part of the Côte de Nuits, classic Chambolles have a silky, floral, berry-infused style, ethereal, energetic textures, and fine, minerally tannins that dance over your palate like a ballerina in silk shoes. Today we are offering 8 Chambolles, from a pure and lovely $49.99 bottle of Domaine Sigaut to a 2014 premier cru for $289 made by the very best domaine in the village Comte de Vogüé. The Burgundians love to serve Chambolle-Musigny with Canard aux Cerises (duck w/cherries), Boeuf aux Morilles (beef w/morels), and ripe, delicate cheeses. Serve in your own home with many main dishes from seared filet mignon to wild salmon simmered in cherries to juicy lamb chops; side dishes of earthy, delicate mushrooms and the finest French cheeses.


'I have never tasted a Chambolle-Musigny that I didn't utterly enjoy...these  are the loveliest of Pinot Noir wines with sheer class and breeding.' Cynthia A. Murray, VP Bottle Shop of Spring Lake


Cheers! the Murray family

 

Domaine Anne & Herve Sigaut Chambolle Musigny 2015

bh 90

RATED 90 BURGHOUND : 'A ripe and very fresh nose expresses notes of black cherry, raspberry and violet.

Domaine Anne & Herve Sigaut Chambolle-Musigny Les Chatelots 2015

bh 92

RATED 92 BURGHOUND : 'Once again there is just enough wood present to warrant mentioning but not so much as to impede the appreciation of the fresh and cool aromas of pure red berries, spice, herbal tea and soft earth gradations. The supple, delicious and even finer middle weight flavors possess a lacy mouth feel, all wrapped in a vibrant, lilting and balanced finish. This is a classic Chambolle of grace and refinement.' Like their understated personalities and attitudes, the Sigauts prefer to make wines on the fine and delicate side, that caress rather than clobber. They are helped by a bevy of old vines, many 50-60+ years old, that have long ago tapped the mother rock of limestone that is the signature of Chambolle’s wines.

Domaine Arlaud Chambolle Musigny 2015

wa 90

RATED 90 WINE ADVOCATE : 'The 2015 Chambolle-Musigny Villages is medium-bodied with chewy tannin, good depth, a touch of salinity on the blackberry and blueberry finish that bodes well for the future.' Cyprien Arlaud took the reins of the domaine in 1997 with the simple and unwavering vision of making pure, benchmark Burgundy. He began the conversion of the estate to biodynamics (certified in 2014) and began using horses to plow domaine vineyards in order to keep the soils as healthy and alive as possible. He has top holdings in Morey St. Denis, Chambolle-Musigny, Gevrey-Chambertin, and Vosne-Romanée and his sister Bertille handles the horse plowing.

Domaine Hudelot-Baillet Chambolle Musigny 2015

bh 90

RATED 90 BURGHOUND : 'Ripe aromas of black cherry possess a slightly exotic character with additional nuances of orange peel, tea, violet and lavender. The rich and generously proportioned flavors are quite fleshy and seductive thanks to the abundant dry extract that buffers the moderately firm tannins shaping the delicious and solidly persistent finale.' Domaine Hudelot-Baillet has cellars in the town and holdings entirely within the appellation. The domaine was created in 1981 by Joël Hudelot (inherited largely from his father Paul) and his wife Chantal Baillet. Hudelot describes his intended style as one of finesse, succinctly explaining that "all of my appellations are in Chambolle and finesse is what we do best."

Domaine Hudelot-Baillet Chambolle Musigny Vieilles Vignes 2015

wa 91-93

RATED 91-93 WINE ADVOCATE : 'The 2015 Chambolle-Musigny Vieilles Vignes offers a slightly more complex fruit profile over the regular Chambolle, black and red mixed together, blackberry, raspberry coulis, hints of marmalade and orange rind. There's more going on here and the aromatics are more involving. The palate is medium-bodied with a sorbet-fresh opening, lively and tensile with vivid red cherries and blackberry towards the energetic finish. This is excellent.'

Domaine Hudelot-Baillet Chambolle Musigny Les Charmes 2016

wa 91-93 bh 92

Crafted from a .63 ha parcel in the premier cru vineyard of Les Charmes in Chambolle-Musigny that produced only 6 barrels of wine, this is a beautiful example from the 2016 vintage. RATED 91-93 WINE ADVOCATE : 'The 2016 1er Cru les Charmes has a dense blackberry and briary-scented bouquet. The palate is smooth and silky in the mouth with a fine line of acidity, better salinity than the Vieilles Vignes, with a long and detailed, energetic finish.'

RATED 92 WINE ADVOCATE : 'Wonderfully fresh and bright with cool aromas of essence of red cherry, floral and spice. The vibrant medium weight flavors possess a clean and focused palate impression while delivering fine length on the cherry pit-inflected finish. This mineral-suffused effort is very Chambolle in character.'

Domaine Comte Georges de Voguë Chambolle Musigny Premier Cru 2014

vc 93 bh 93 wa 92

Domaine Comte Georges de Vogüé can trace its roots back over 550 years, to 1450, and the Chambolle vines of Jean Moisson. Highly regarded as the greatest estate in Chambolle Musigny, today the domaine is headed by its 20th generation - Claire de Causans and Marie de Ladoucette, the granddaughters of the late Comte Georges de Vogüé. RATED 93 BURGHOUND : 'The intensely floral-suffused nose reveals notes of lavender, rose petal and lilac along with plenty of spice elements on the mostly dark berry fruit aromas. There is notably more volume to the equally pure medium weight plus flavors that positively vibrate with energy and minerality before culminating in a harmonious and beautifully well-balanced finale. This marvelously complex effort really builds from the mid-palate as the finish is sneaky long.'
