A blend of 8 lieux dits from contrasting exposures and soils of the entire village : Les Bas-Doix, Les Danguerrins , Les Argillières, Les Drazeys, Aux Croix, les Clos, Les Bussières, and les Cras. Ahhh Chambolle. The lovely. Similar in color to the Morey, yet much higher toned and airy. Ye olde limestone in action. Mouth watering, with a bit of grip. À table! (Let’s eat!) The overall impression is still all about the loveliness and rising inner mouth perfume on the finish. About as good as it gets for your dollar in Chambolle villages.
“The 2017 Chambolle-Musigny Village, which contains 10% whole bunches, seems more expressive on the nose than the Morey-Saint-Denis, offering blackberry, raspberry and light loamy aromas. The palate is well balanced, the 30% new oak nicely integrated. The charming, open-knit finish suggests this will drink sooner rather than later.” 89-91 Neil Martin
“(the majority of the blend comes from Les Bas Doix with the rest from Les Drazey, Les Cras, Les Bussières and Les Danguerrins). Pretty if marked restrained aromas speak of both red and dark pinot fruit along with soft spice and earth nuances. The sleek and delicious flavors possess a lovely sense of detail as well as a subtle minerality that suffuses the slightly more complex and persistent finale. This elegant effort is very Chambolle in style. (87-90)/2023+” Allan Meadows
