Chambolle takes its name from the bubbling appearance of the Grône stream. In 1878 the name of its best cru, Musigny, was appended to the village name. This A.O.C. is for red wine only and covers a total area of 182 hectares.
Vinous Media"Healthy medium red. Vibrant aromas and flavors of blackberry, cassis, spices and flowers, with a hint of medicinal mintiness giving the nose even more lift. Refined in texture and classically dry but with a lovely touch of fruit sweetness. In a very elegant style, a bit drier than the Baudes, perhaps owing to the element of wild herbs, but equally concentrated." - Stephen Tanzer, Jan 2016
