Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 94
Wine Spectator
Intense and smoky, with spicy oak wrapping around a core of black cherry and blackberry flavors. Shows a textural density and fluidity that plays out on the long finish. Best from 2023 through 2043.
RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2016 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Sentiers Vieilles Vignes is absolutely superb, bursting from the glass with aromas of earthy cherries and berry fruit, mingled with notions of rose petal, smoked meats and blood orange. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, velvety and multidimensional, with excellent concentration, ripe acids and a strikingly long, penetrating finish. Production was low this year, but this Sentiers is well worth a special effort to seek out.

Burghound.com
Aromas of dark currant and plum are nuanced by plenty of earth and spice elements that slide gracefully into finer but still muscular flavors that flash a bit more minerality on the dusty, focused and balanced finish. At present this does not possess superior complexity but the underlying material appears to be sufficiently fine that more depth should eventually develop and my projected range assumes that it will.

Domaine Anne et Herve Sigaut, France
This relatively small 7 hectare estate has been in existence for four generations. It is run by the amiable couple, Anne and Hervé Sigaut who are wonderful, low-key folks, true people of the earth who love what they do and clearly work hard to make the absolute best wines that they can, not for the outside praise, but rather because their inner ‘Burgundian compasses’ guide them to do so. Although they collaborate on all aspects of the production, she is a bit more in vineyards and commerce, and he more in the cellar. Because they don’t own any Grand Cru vineyards, they have largely remained “under-the-radar” in a village that certainly doesn’t lack for anointed stars. Like their understated personalities and attitudes, the Sigauts prefer to make wines on the fine and delicate side, wines that caress rather than clobber. They are helped by a bevy of old vines, many 50-60+ years old, that have long ago tapped the mother rock of limestone that is the signature of Chambolle’s wines. The vines are meticulously worked and tended during the growing season, as naturally and respectfully as possible. “We are 100% organic from the flowering on”, says Anne Sigaut, “and before that, we intervene only when absolutely necessary if it is a question of saving the harvest. We also time our work in the vineyards and cellar to follow the cycles of the moon”. At the harvest, like most top estates now in Burgundy, the crew picks carefully by hand, with a sorting both in the vineyard and in the cellar on a table de trie. The grapes are then de-stemmed and fermented with indigenous yeasts with a gentle regime of maceration over the 3 week cuvaison. The wines are then pressed and moved by gravity to barrel for the élévage in 10-33% new oak, depending on the cuvée. The wines stay in barrel in general for 15-16 months, and are then racked by gravity to tank where they are held for a couple of months to harmonize and clarify naturally before a bottling without fining and filtration.

Chambolle-Musigny Wine

Cote de Nuits, Burgundy

View all products

Chambolle-Musigny represents the charm of the Côte de Nuits district of Burgundy. But you’ll find that term mainly in reference to the vineyards in its southern stretches, which border Clos Vougeot: the Grand Cru of Le Musingy and in part, its neighboring and most exceptional Premier Cru, Les Amoureuses. Some producers argue for the primacy of Les Amoureuses and its eligibility for Grand Cru status given its wines can sometimes surpass other Grands Crus.

Le Musigny ranks on par with the most acclaimed Grands Crus for Pinot Noir: Romanée-Conti, La Tâche, Richebourg, Chambertin, and Chambertin-Clos de Bèze. It is also the only Grand Cru in Côte de Nuits for Chardonnay. All of the others are in Côte de Beaune.

This village can in fact claim only two Grands Crus vineyards and—in the context of breaking down the minutiae—they are markedly different. Bonnes-Mares, the other one at the far northern end above the village, bordering Morey-St-Denis, offers power, strength and great aging potential. But Chambolle-Musigny includes a nice handful of exceptional Premiers Crus, as noted above with Les Amoureuses as the finest. Le Fuees and Les Cras are other noteworthy Premiers Crus.

Overall, a top Chambolle-Musigny offers pure aromas of violets, dark cherry and damp earth, coupled with a velvety elegance, supple mid-palate, an abundance of black and red berry, and finesse and power through a long and fine-grained finish.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
