Country: France, Burgundy, Chambolle Musigny
Grape Varieties: Pinot Noir 100%
The soil and sub-soils of the commune of Chambolle Musigny are of ideal composition for the production of wipes of remarkable finesse and elegance, which have earned Chambolle the nickname of the "Volnay of the Cote de Nuits". The Soil is generally not very deep, obliging the vine to search for nourishment down as far as 10 meters deep, notably on the terroir of Musigny. Going back up towards another Grand Cru situated further north, the terroir of Bonnes Mares, the wines gain in body and power, like those from the parcel of Noirots.

Tasting Notes: Deep and delicated bouquet of small red fruits, sweet spices and mocha. Racy and smooth on the palate it is a very refined wine. Very good ageing potential.

Ageing: The cellars of the Bastions of the ancient Chateau de Beaune offer natural ambient conditions that are perfectly adapted to ageing the 1er Crus.

Food Pairing: Ribs, leg and loin of lamb.

Case Bottles: 6

The Grape
Pinot Noir
Pinot Noir is probably the most frustrating, and at times infuriating, wine grape in the world. However when it is successful, it can produce some of the most sublime wines known to man. This thin-skinned grape which grows in small, tight bunches performs well on well-drained, deepish limestone based subsoils as are found on Burgundy`s Côte d`Or.

Pinot Noir is more susceptible than other varieties to over cropping - concentration and varietal character disappear rapidly if yields are excessive and yields as little as 25hl/ha are the norm for some climates of the Côte d`Or.

Because of the thinness of the skins, Pinot Noir wines are lighter in colour, body and tannins. However the best wines have grip, complexity and an intensity of fruit seldom found in wine from other grapes. Young Pinot Noir can smell almost sweet, redolent with freshly crushed raspberries, cherries and redcurrants. When mature, the best wines develop a sensuous, silky mouth feel with the fruit flavours deepening and gamey "sous-bois" nuances emerging.

The best examples are still found in Burgundy, although Pinot Noir`s key role in Champagne should not be forgotten. It is grown throughout the world with notable success in the Carneros and Russian River Valley districts of California, and the Martinborough and Central Otago regions of New Zealand.
