Chambolle Musigny



Chambolle Musigny
is situated where a small valley - the Combe de Chamboeuf - breaks into the East facing slopes of the Cote d'Or. As a result of this divide, the best vineyards lie at the very Northern and Southern ends of the commune. The soils here are limestone rich, with little clay, and seem to give wines of perfume, finesse and even delicacy. The Grand Cru Bonnes Mares stands out as an exception, both in style - much fuller, perhaps even sturdy - and in geology, being in part of heavy clay soils. It takes much longer aging than other wines from Chambolle

There are only two Grand Crus in Chambolle, but both quite large in area. Bonnes Mares, at the Northern border of the commune, and actually shared with Morey is 15ha, and Musigny at the Southern end adjacent to Vougeot and Flagey is 11 ha.

The very best 1er Cru vineyards actually lie adjacent to these Grand Crus. They are:
  • Les Amoureuses
  • La Combe d'Orveau
each side of Musigny, and
  • Les Fuees
  • Les Cras
effectively forming an extension of Bonnes Mares right up to the point where the Combe de Chamboeuf cuts into the slope.

I have also had some good wines from Les Charmes and Les Feusselottes.
