Description :

Chambolle-Musigny is one of the smaller appellations of the Côte de Nuits, and apart from a 1.6 hectare plot of Chardonnay in Musigny, exclusively produces red wines. In addition to the Grand Crus of Bonnes-Mares and Musigny there are 24 Premier Cru vineyards. The name Les Chatelots refers here to the Latin word castellum meaning water tower and refers to the water retaining properties of this site's soils when the Grône floods. The limestone soil is renowned for producing wines that are delicately scented and well-balanced.

Aging :

10 to 12 months in oak barrels, 40% new

Tasting Note :

The Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru "Les Chatelots» 2012 has an intense garnet colour. The nose is powerful with aromas of cherry and liquorice. The tannins are present but not dominant. It is very fresh on the palate with a very good persistence.
