Two superb grands crus are grown here: Bonnes-Mares, which links its vineyards to those of Morey-Saint-Denis, and Musigny which overlooks the Clos De Vougeot. The village also boasts among its fine wines a prestigious premier cru, Les Amoureuses. Its AOC dates from September 1936, making it one of the first French vineyards to be thus designated.
Chambolle-Musigny's slope faces east at altitudes of 250-300 metres with only a shallow covering of soil overlying the parent rock, but fissures in the hard Jurassic limestone allow the roots of the vines to seek nourishment deep within the sub-soil. Boulders and gravels in the valley bottom ensure good drainage.
Chambolle-Musigny is a red wine, often regarded as the most “feminine” wine of the Côte De Nuits; its personality demands sophisticated dishes like feathered game, roasted lamb or a free range capon.
