Winemaker's Notes

Despite owning portions of Les Baudes and Les Fuées in addition to their holding in Amoureuses, there is actually no premier Cru wine in these bottles, only the declassified juice from the young (under 25 years) Musigny vines—Musigny in short trousers as the domaine likes to call it. The first outing for this wine was the 1995 vintage—before this time quite a lot of juice was sold to the negociants. Today, there are about 2.8 hectares of these young vines, producing around 500 cases of Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru per year.

The fruit shows a much deeper aspect on the nose and still a trace of oak. The palate also offers a step-up in density versus the villages and an extra creamy edge to the beautifully presented fruit. To match, there's a little extra structure with more forward tannins. Not so lacy but certainly more serious. Very good wine, one day.

"Good deep red. Serious nose offers black cherry, black raspberry, menthol, licorice and flowers. Dense, sweet and powerful, with terrific intensity to the flavors of black raspberry, crushed blueberry and licorice. Wonderfully rich and tactile wine, as chewy as a solid. The broad, very long finish saturates the palate with flavor. Impressive."
-International Wine Cellar

"2006 Chambolle-Musigny "1er": (all from younger vines Musigny). A more deeply pitched, riper and notably more complex nose that is restrained, cool and positively gorgeous as seemingly all of the spicy elements it projects are perfectly reflected by the textured, concentrated and naturally sweet big-bodied flavors brimming with minerality and buckets of extract that render the firm tannic spine almost invisible on the direct, frank and driving finish that is almost painfully intense and where the floral character of the nose resurfaces. A flat out brilliant wine for this level and best that de Vogüé has ever made."
Allen Meadows, Burghound, 94/100
