Domaine Anne & Herve Sigaut Chambolle-Musigny Les Chatelots 2015
The village and appellation of Chambolle Musigny represents such beautiful Burgundian Pinot Noir at its most elegant and finesse-driven. The wines of Anne and Hervé Sigaut are classic and archetypal Chambolles with fine, elegant and floral aromas and flavors, ethereal, energetic textures, and wonderful chalky/mineral tannins that dance over your palate like a ballerina in silk. This small 7 hectare estate has been in existence for four generations. It is run by the amiable couple, Anne and Hervé Sigaut who are wonderful, low-key folks, true people of the earth who love what they do and clearly work hard to make the absolute best wines that they can, not for the outside praise, but rather because their inner ‘Burgundian compasses’ guide them to do so. Although they collaborate on all aspects of the production, she is a bit more in vineyards and commerce, and he more in the cellar. Because they don’t own any Grand Cru vineyards, they have largely remained “under-the-radar” in a village that certainly doesn’t lack for anointed stars. The range of premiers crus is diverse and first rate, including Fuées, Chatelots, Noirots and Sentiers, as well as small parcels in the Morey 1er crus, Millandes and Charrières.

BurghoundOnce 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. 89-92
