Winemaker's Notes

The commune of Chambolle and its village are transversed by the Little River Grône, ordinarily a peaceful body of water. But for centuries, occasional downpours have transformed it into a savage, torrential flood submerging streets and cellars. The persistence of this behavior is evidenced by the Latin name "Campus Ebulliens," or "boiling field," from which by 1110 "Cambola," and later "Chambolle," evolved. It was only planted in vines, during the 1200s, by the monks of Vougeot.

Le Musigny is the oldest vineyard of Chambolle, originally a property of the Musigné family, who, during the Middle Ages, were heavily involved with the government of The Duchy of Burgundy. Le Musigny is an elongated climat at the southern end of Chambolle covering 26 acres in four parcels: two in La Combe d'Orveau, totalling 1.5 acres; 10.5 in Les Petits Musigny; and 14.5, in Le Musigny proper. The unusual calcareous soils of Chambolle are especially fine in the Musigny vineyard, and produce a magnificent wine of greater elegance than any of the Côte d'Or. Domaine Louis Jadot is proprietor of .4 acres in Le Musigny acquired in 1985 through the purchase of Domaine Clair Daü. This superb parcel produces a quintessential Musigny, with the slightly floral, violet-scented bouquet and raspberry flavors characteristic of the wine. Ethereally delicate and feminine, yet with a firm structure, it shows a silky texture and elegant fruit complexity of exceptional finesse.

"Full, deep red. Ineffable aromas of raspberry, flowers, crushed stone and blood orange; if I were building a perfume of pinot noir I would start with these components. Thick and sweet on entry, then almost painfully intense in the middle palate, with uncanny energy and a texture of liquid silk. A wine of great elegance: the incredible mounting finish displays serious power and weight without sacrificing clarity or energy."
