Domaine Drouhin-Laroze Chambolle-Musigny 2011 displays a sustained ruby colour, its subtlety and elegance make it easy to see why it is referred to as being feminine in style. A floral fragrance on the nose characterises its aromatic refinement. Very expressive and typical, it combines a vigorous and ripe body with its suave texture and fruity aromas. Complete and long, leaving a suggestion of liquorice on the finish.

From the Latin "Campus Ebullien" meaning "Bubbling Field", the name Chambolle comes from the French word describing the aspect of the foaming Grône stream in the wake of heavy rain.

This village Chambolle-Musigny is obtained from two lieux-dits: 0.18 hectares of vines in Les Baudes directly below Bonnes Mares, and 0.04 hectares in Les Véroilles situated immediately above Bonnes Mares. These two parcels were planted in 2000 and in 1981 respectively.

From Allen Meadows' Burghound.com:
A mix of 80% Les Baudes and 20% from the villages portion of Les Veroilles. A fresh and distinctly cool nose of airy and laudably pure red Pinot fruit, stone and soft spice hints. There is that lovely sense of underlying tension to the detailed and precise middle weight flavours that possess fine balance and excellent length on the saline suffused finish. This is a good stuff and the premier cru portion of the blend is particularly evident in 2011. Drink 2018+. 89-92 Points
