Goedhuis, December 2011
Stunningly bright purple colour, this has great purity of fresh red fruits on the nose and palate. There is intensity and yet harmony, supported by a delicious sweetness of generous fruit on the finish. Very good.
Burghound, January 2012,
(from 11 different parcels totaling 1.5 ha, scattered all over Chambolle). An ultra-elegant, airy and cool nose of essence of red pinot fruit and stone aromas leads to clean and equally pure middle weight flavors that are very Chambolle in character, all wrapped in a dusty, delicious, balanced and linear finish. An excellent villages that should reward 5 to 7 years of cellaring. 2016+

Dark crimson. Very full and opulent nose. Sweet and ripe and blustering. Drink 2016-2023
Domaine Ghislaine Barthod
Exquisitely pure, ethereal, and terroir-driven, Ghislaine’s wines also have wonderful mineral raciness. The domaine was originally created by Marcel Noëllat, Ghislaine’s maternal grandfather. After attending viticultural college in Beaune in the 1980s, she began assisting her father, Gaston Barthod, at the family domaine. Her straightforward, no-nonsense approach helped introduce a sorting table, extended lees contact, a gentle cold soak before fermentation, and domaine bottling. All this enabled greater control over the quality of fruit, texture of tannins, and purity of flavours. The results have been year upon year of magical masterpieces from Chambolle Musigny. Along with her partner Louis Boillot, today she is joined in the vineyard and cellar by their son, Clément.
The wines of Chambolle Musigny are like no other. They can be superbly delicate, yet mindblowingly complex. Of all the northern Burgundy appellations, they are the most ethereal, and as a result the most feminine. Most of the Chambolle Musigny vineyard area is encompassed in its Village and Premier Cru appellations including the robust Beaux Bruns, the splendidly mineral Le Cras and the poised yet powerful Les Amoureuses. It produces only two Grand Crus - the round and rich Bonnes Mares which it shares with Morey St. Dénis, as well as what could be described as the Stradivarius of grand crus, Musigny.
