Chambolle-Musigny is a small village in the Cote de Nuits neighboring Vougeot. The village produces almost exclusively Pinot Noir, though a very small quantity of Chardonnay is produced from the highly-regarded Le Musigny Grand Cru vineyard. The word ‘Chambolle’ roughly translates to 'boiling field' and is a reference to the gushes of water which flow down the hillside slopes after heavy rainfall when the nearby stream has overrun its banks. The wines of Chambolle- Musigny are known for being powerful yet refined; rich yet elegant.
This village Pinot Noir is bright and vibrant with nuances of minerality. On the palate, the broad flavors and mid-palate clarity display notes of sour cherry and peony. The firm tannins provide added complexity to this Chambolle.
