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
WS 95
Wine Spectator

Intense and unyielding, with cherry, blackberry, violet, smoke and mineral flavors yielding to dense yet ripe tannins on the finish. Nicely proportioned and lively, offering a long aftertaste.

BH 94
Burghound.com

This is also ultra-floral in character with its highly complex and airy nose that includes notes of spicy red currant and pomegranate. There is terrific richness to the more mineral-driven and caressing middle weight flavors that deliver outstanding balance, depth and persistence on the chiseled and explosive finale. In contrast to the Noirots this is very Chambolle in basic character and should age beautifully well. Rating: 92-94

RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2014 Chambolle Musigny 1er Cru Combe d'Orveaux was just a little reduced on the nose when we met at the domaine. Like the Noirots, this is holding something back. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red berry fruit; there is mouth-sapping salinity here and it is delineated with good tension, gently building towards a lightly grippy finish. Once the aromatics awaken, this will be a lovely Chambolle Musigny, even if it is a bit of a broody bugger out of barrel. Rating: 90-92

Domaine Bruno Clavelier, France
This domaine has existed since the end of the 18th century; however, the wines were sold to negociants until 1988, when Bruno Clavelier, after a distinguished career playing rugby for Dijon in the French first division, decided to estate-bottle all their wine. Clavelier has an uncluttered, purist’s approach to winemaking: the focus is care of the vineyards. The domaine has a total of 6.5 hectares of vines, mostly 1er Cru and village-designated holdings in Chambolle, Gevrey, and Vosne, and a single 1/3 hectare parcel in Corton. These vines are their pride and joy: all are selection massale, and the majority were planted in the 1930’s and 40’s. Clavelier was one of the early adopters of organic viticulture (certified in 1999) and he has practiced biodynamic viticulture since 2000 (certified since 2005). Because of the advanced age of the vines, yields are naturally low, and the root systems are very developed, giving the vines a lot of contact with minerals in deeper layers of the soil. In the cellar, as in the vineyard, the idea is to reveal what Mother Nature gives in each vintage. Primary fermentation happens in open-top tronconical wood fermenters; up to 30% of whole clusters are kept during the vinification. Fermentations start naturally, with gentle manual punchdowns if necessary. The first fermentation normally lasts about three weeks, after which the wine is very gently pressed and the juice is racked by gravity to barrels for aging. Malolactic fermentation happens in barrel and generally starts in the spring following harvest, and the wines are aged for 16-18 months in barrel as well. Up to one-third of the oak is new for the 1er Cru and Grand Cru wines. The wines are bottled without fining or filtration, and the bottling happens under a neutral gas so that the amount of SO2 can be as low as possible. All of the village-level Vosne is bottled by climat, rather than blended into a single Vosne village wine.

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.”
