Ghislaine Barthod, Chambolle Musigny 1er Cru Les Charmes, Cote de Nuits 2017 (centrally located .25 hecatre noble vinyeard) -
This remarkable small family estate, located entirely in Chambolle-Musigny. This small estate vinifies no less than eleven premier crus, all with different characters. Robust, classic in the best sense of the term, the wines favor finesse and have gained in color intensity. Sometimes a little firm in their youth, they reward those who know how to wait ten to fifteen years. This area in great shape deserves all the attention of amateurs.
The wines: balanced and ripe, the Chambolle blends seven plots. Flavors of Morello cherry and brandied cherry in Les Sentiers, a lively and quite mineral wine, whose structure is similar to that of Morey wines.
Grape: Pinot Noir
Region: Côte de Nuits
