Chambolle Musigny

Wine Characteristics


Chambolle-Musigny is a red wine, often regarded as the most “feminine” wine of the Côte de Nuits; its intensity and delicacy express themselves with elegance and subtlety. To the eye, it presents a bright ruby hue with luminous highlights. It may darken a little over time but with no loss of impact. Its bouquet, easily recognisable, is composed of violet and small red fruits (raspberry, strawberry). With further aging it tends towards spiced ripe fruits and prune, or towards truffle, underbrush and animal notes. Rich, fragrant and complex, it lines the palate with silk and lace. Its delicate but fleshy texture in no way detracts from its solid and durable structure. On the sweet side with little trace of acidity, its tannins remain silky-smooth.

Wine Steward’s Tip


With a personality that allies power and feminity, it demands high-flavoured and sophisticated dishes like feathered game (in sauce, for example), well-roasted lamb or a free range capon. Roast veal’s subtle texture would be delicately enveloped by the dense but silky tannins of the Chambolle (especially the Premiers Crus). Cheeses - preferably mild: Brillat-Savarin, Reblochon, Cîteaux, Vacherin, Brie de Meaux or Chaource. Soft-centred cheeses will respond to its great aromatic complexity.
Serving temperatures: 12 to 14°C for young wines,14 to 16°C for older wines.
 

Situation

This little village of the Côte de Nuits, formerly an adjunct of the Abbey of Cîteaux, is unwilling to expand, since to do so would mean encroaching on its precious land (though it has given space to a lime-tree with a girth of 5 metres!).
Two superb appellations Grands Crus are grown here: BONNES-MARES, which links its vineyards to those of Morey-Saint-Denis, and MUSIGNY which overlooks the Clos de Vougeot. The village also boasts among its fine wines a prestigious Premier Cru, Les Amoureuses. Its AOC dates from September 1936, making it one of the first French vineyards to be thus designated.
 

Terroirs

The slope faces east at altitudes of 250-300 metres with only a shallow covering of soil overlying the parent rock, but fissures in the hard Jurassic limestone allow the roots to seek nourishment deep within the sub-soil. Boulders and gravels in the valley bottom ensure good drainage.

Wine Estate

Domaine Michel Noëllat

Among the oldest winegrowing families of Vosne Romanée, the Domaine Michel Noëllat et fils feeds on a unique know-how associated with innovative ideas.

The Domaine Michel Noëllat in Vosne Romanée produces village appellations, Premier Cru and Grands Crus de Bourgogne from the Côte de Nuits.

The harvests and winemaking are very demanding: for the red wines, the grapes are harvested by hand, sorted, then conveyed to the vat room in small tanks to avoid crushing berries and early oxidation.

They are de-stemmed completely then put in open stainless steel tanks, the temperatures being controlled by thermo-regulation.

The red macerates at low temperature for 3 days then the fermentation takes place in the tanks for about 2 weeks.

Regular pumping over is done and the hat is pegged 4 to 5 times during the vinification period.

The wines are aged in French oak barrels from various sources.
The proportion of new oak is between 30% for the villages and 50% for the 1st Crus and Grands Crus.

The bottling is carried out after 15 to 18 months of aging in barrels.
