Tasting Notes

  • GDH

    Goedhuis, December 2016

    This is a great cuvée in 2015. The slightly cooler and more exposed higher vineyard location has resulted in a very balanced wine this year. Full of elegant crisp red fruits, the tannins provide depth and structure while the gentle freshness of acidity ensures a poised finish.

    Neal Martin, December 2016,
    Score: 93-95

    The 2015 Chambolle Musigny 1er Cru les Cras, which has just a tiny reduction, has a very pure, mulberry and raspberry preserve-scented bouquet, quite intense with fine mineralité, perhaps not quite as detailed as the Veroilles. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, a mixture of red and black fruit, just a suggestion of cassis, all with superb salinity and a silver bead of acidity. Lovely length in the mouth, this is a sensual Le Cras destined to give two decades of drinking pleasure.

  • BURG

    Burghound, January 2017,
    Score: 92-94

    Fresh aromas of black raspberry, cherry, cassis and a hint of the exotic complement perfectly the ripe yet cool and ultra-intense mineral-driven flavors that possess a borderline pungent salinity while delivering outstanding depth and length on the beautifully well-balanced finale. This is a bit less youthfully austere than usual but it’s still definitely built-to-age and is going to need at least 7 to 8 years first. Terrific. Sweet spot. Outstanding. (92-94)/2027+

Producer

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.

Region

Chambolle-Musigny

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.
