Chambolle 2011

Total Surface : 10 ouvrées (1 ouvrée = 4 ares(acres) 28)
Grape Variety : Pinot Noir
Average Age of the Vines : 63 years old
Nature of the Soil : This wine is the result of a blending of several parcels, The Chardannes, The Herbues, The Maladières, and The Babillère. Between 250 and 300 meters of altitude facing the East, the downslope is close to the thin bedrock soil. Numerous cracks in the hard limestone soil allow the roots to meet their needs deep in the Jurassic undergrounds. Blocks of stone and gravel ensure a good drainage at the bottom of the valley.
Harvesting : Manual Only
Average Production : 2400 Bottles
Wine Characteristics : The Chambolle Musigny is a red wine often presented as the most feminine of the Côte de Nuits.
Intensity and finesse are expressed with an elegant subtlety. Violets and red berries compose its typical defined bouquet. With age, it’s nose evolves into a spicy mature fruit, prunes, and truffles. Rich and complex, it coats the palate with silk and lace. It’s fleshy delicacy does not keep it from conserving its solid structure and durability.
