    Winemaker Notes

    This village Pinot Noir is bright and vibrant with nuances of minerality. On the palate, the broad flavors and mid-palate clarity display notes of sour cherry and peony. The firm tannins provide added complexity to this Chambolle.

    Rajat Parr is considered one of the greatest sommeliers of our time and has a particular affection for the wines of Burgundy. Rajat Parr’s devotion to Burgundy is well-known. Since his earliest days as a Sommelier in San Francisco, the great reds and whites of the Cote d'Or have been his muses. The restaurants he has created and the wines he makes are all inspired from his deep love of Burgundy.

    Meaning the “home at the edge of the forest,” the creation of the negociant house Maison L'Oree is Rajat’s first opportunity to help produce the very wines that have inspired his life.

    For both the avid consumer of Burgundian wines and the newcomer to this often-intimidating region, Maison L’Orée presents the opportunity to explore the region via vetted, curated selections from a passionate advocate of the area.

    Guided by Rajat’s palate and knowledge, Maison L’Orée offers small quantities of hand-selected wines from Rajat’s favorite vineyard sites in Burgundy.

    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.”
