Goedhuis, November 2018
90% of the fruit for this village wine comes from the southern section of the lieu dit Beaux Bruns, which is classified as village level, whilst the upper slope is premier cru. This wine shows much of the fine elegance and intricate sweet fruit of its premier cru sibling, but with a softer fruit weave. It has lovely cranberry and sweet spices on the nose and paints a perfect portrait of this village in its silky tannins and medium weight. A top village wine.
Neal Martin, January 2019,
The 2017 Chambolle-Musigny Village has a light, airy bouquet of breezy, carefree red fruit; a touch of cold stone emerges with time. The palate is medium-bodied with a fresh opening. There is plenty of vigor here, leading to a well-defined, sorbet-fresh finish with orange peel lingering on the aftertaste. Very fine. 2021 - 2036

An exuberantly fresh and pretty nose is formed by cool, pure and airy aromas of pomegranate, red cherry, raspberry. In the same vein there is a lovely sense of underlying tension and wonderfully refined if lighter weight flavors that are saline and stony before concluding in a bitter cherry-inflected finish. This is a classic Chambolle of lace and grace. Drink 2023+
Domaine Louis Boillot
Louis is the seventh generation of vignerons in Burgundy from a family who is mostly known for their Côte de Beaune wines such as Pommard and Volnay however, several Côte de Nuits appellations including Gevrey Chambertin were added to the repertoire in 1978. Many of these are parcels of extremely old vines, and the wines have a natural concentration and silky persistence. Today Louis vinifies and ages his wines in Chambolle Musigny in the same cellar as his other half, Ghislaine Barthod. In fact, it has been said that his influences have helped create the celestial beauties that have risen from her vineyards. Both are ably assisted by their son, Clément. He has been instrumental in Louis Boillot’s recent purchase of vineyards in Beaujolais, Moulin à Vent, where these skilled Burgundians bring their expertise to the Gamay grape.
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.
