Discover the Chambolle-Musigny wine appellation
The AOC Chambolle-Musigny comes from a vineyard located right next to the Morey-Saint-Denis appellation, to the north of Vougeot (Burgundy). The grapevines are planted at the end of the combe of Chambolle, on a 180 hectares field, and they can produce 6,500 hectoliters of wines on average. The 24 Premiers Crus and the 2 Grands Crus (Musigny and Bonnes-Mares) can be found in the center and southern part of the vineyard. As for the soil, it's mostly scree from landslides and colluvial deposits of limestone.
The red wines are dominant, made with the Pinot Noir variety of grapes, but a few white wines are also produced. The Amoureuses is the big hitter of the Premiers Crus, as it is as praised as a bonafide Grand Cru. In the northern part, the Cras climate is responsible for wines that are reminiscent of the Bonnes-Mares or Derrière la Grange appellations: they're very strong and tannic. Our advice for these types of wines is to let the bottle in your cellar a few years before opening it.
