Chambolle Musigny 1er Cru, Burgundy, France
Chambolle takes its name from the bubbling appearance of the "Grône" stream. In 1878 the name of its best cru, Musigny, was appended to the village name. This A.O.C. is for red wine only and covers a total area of 182 hectares.
The parcel is located just near the Grand Cru Bonnes-Mares. "Fuée" is a Burgundian word designating the surface that one man can work in one day thanks to his hoe. The vines are planted on rather stony soil composed of marl. The limestone bedrock that dominates this vineyard is quite cracked
The airy and ripe nose reflects notes of cherry, pomegranate and spice where a hint of volatile acidity lurks in the background. There is really good energy to the delineated and stony flavors that deliver fine length on the very firm finish where the only nit is a hint of warmth.
