2021 Georges Glantenay Chambolle Musigny villages



The Chambolle Musigny holdings come from their Grandmother’s side of the family, Georgette Midan, who married their Grandfather Georges Glantenay. The vines were leased out en fermage until 2003. From a .45 hectare parcel of 45-65 year old vines from three lieu dits : les Creux Baissants (a cooler NE facing site), les Condemennes (a well placed site just below 1er cru les Charmes), and les Fremières (just below 1er cru les Baudes/les Noirots). Guillaume’s sensibility for freshness, prettiness, and purity seem quite well suited for bringing out the airy, cool, and precise qualities of great Chambolle……this is one to get a 6pk/case of if Chambolle is something that tickles your heart strings……gorgeousness. Allen and Jasper are in agreement, I think….A little * awarded here.

“(from Les Condemennes, Creux Baissants and Les Fremiers). Hints of green tea and fennel are present on the aromas of red cherry and rose petal. There is very good volume to the relatively rich and generously proportioned flavors where the abundant sap both coats the palate and buffers the moderately firm tannic spine shaping the sneaky long, dusty and youthfully austere finale. This is a very good Chambolle villages and worth a look. (89-91)/2028+” Allan Meadows ———-> “particularly outstanding for their respective appellations and especially merit your attention”

“A very pretty fresh purple, with an elegant velvety nose. Really quite striking. A generosity of plump raspberry fruit, mineral tension behind, supple yet also reasonably dense. Good acid balance to finish. An illustration that the Côte de Nuits enjoyed more favourable conditions in 2021. Drink from 2026-2030. Tasted: October 2022.” 90-92 Jasper Morris
