Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru "Les Chabiots" 100% Pinot noir. Located between Vougeot and
Morey-Saint-Denis, at the heart of the Côte de Nuits, the name of the small
commune of Chambolle-Musigny is derived from the name of the ancient Celtic
village, “Cambola”. Les Chabiots Premier Cru lies next to the “Les Amoureuses“
vineyard, in the southern part of the Premier Cru area. The soil’s shallow
depth and the proximity of the limestone bedrock allow this exquisite wine’s
notable characteristics of elegance and silkiness to develop.
"Chabiots" may refer to the word “caboche” from the Vulgar Latin word
CAPUM (head) due to the fact that rocks and stony blocks the size of a head and
weighing between 50 and 200 kg were found at a depth of 40-60 cm when the soil
here was ploughed for the planting of vines.
Tasting: The nose features intense aromas of wild
fruit of the woods (blackcurrant, blackberry, blueberry). Both floral and
fruity, this wine offers remarkable balance and a long, refreshing finish with
hints of tobacco and menthol.
Food/wine pairing:Perfect with finely-cooked red meats and
Serving and keeping:Serve at 17°C (62°F)
