Winemaker Notes

The Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru La Combe d'Orveau offers a proud profile mixing great finesse of expression and mineral depth, all vertical, in the martial spirit of the neighboring Musigny. It requires a long opening time to deliver its captivating character, its wide aromatic palette (pomegranate, spice, citrus, flowers ...) and its texture dynamics.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
V 95
(13.5% alcohol with a 3.25 pH; the yield here was just 20 hectoliters per hectare): Bright medium red. Knockout nose combines raspberry, rose petal, violet, spices and stone, with darker fruit notes emerging as the wine opens in the glass; there's a ripeness allied to freshness here that reminds me of southern Rhone grenache from a moderately warm vintage. Densely packed, wonderfully energetic, tactile wine with a captivating sweetness perfectly supported by lively acidity. This is actually a bit youthfully compact in the middle palate, with a slightly monolithic quality that calls for extended aging. The very long, mounting, palate-staining finish displays striking tension and a complete absence of edges. Clavelier's mostly very old vines here are situated next to Petits-Musigny, the southern portion of Musigny. Really transcends the vintage.
BH 94
Here the wood treatment is a bit less subtle though not so much as to significantly impede the appreciation of the spicy, fresh and airy aromas of essence of red currant and cherry that are laced with plenty of floral elements. The sleek, intense, mineral-driven and tension-filled middle weight flavors brim with dry extract that buffers the firm core of tannins on the detailed, chiseled and explosively long finish. This is quite simply marvelous and absolutely worthy of your interest, provided of course that you have at least moderate patience.
Barrel Sample: 92-94

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2015 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru La Combe d'Orveau was showing just a touch of reduction on the nose that seemed to blow away with rigorous aeration. Underneath lies dark cherries, raspberry and cranberry juice aromas infused with cold stone scents. The palate is fresh and vibrant on the entry. Crunchy red berry fruit to the fore, allied with tangible mineralité thanks to its stony texture that leaves the mouth tingling after the wine has departed. This is another superb 2015 from Bruno Clavelier.

Wine Spectator

Intense black currant and violet flavors highlight this linear, tense red, hanging together with a grainy texture and dense tannins.

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.”
