Best wine supplier in Philippines discusses wine related topics

The commune of Chambolle-Musigny lies just north of Vougeot and south of Morey-Saint-Denis on two steep slopes at either end of the commune which rise above the village of Chambolle in the valley between them. Its vineyards occupy 423 acres, 223 of which produce Chambolle’s village wines, and an additional 150 acres divided among 24 premiers crus. The remaining 40 acres are in the commune’s two grands crus: Le Musigny, at the southern extremity, and Bonnes-Mares, at the northern extremity, a small part of which spills into Morey-Saint-Denis. Of Chambolle-Musigny’s annual average production of 5,404 hectolitres (60,044 cases) of wine, all but seven are red; the 900-odd bottles of white are exclusively from the minuscule grand cru vineyard of Le Musigny Blanc.

Chambolle-Musigny is unique in the Côte de Nuits for the chalky composition of its soils (unlike the clay soils relevant elsewhere). The thin, calcareous layer clings to a hard rocky soil beneath, which stresses the vines and sharply restricts their yield; village and premier cru production is less than 15 hectolitres (5,625 gallons) per hectare, one-third of the legal maximum. But these soils are responsible for Chambolle-Musigny’s exceptional delicacy and a character possessed by no other wine of the Côte de Nuits.

The Les Amoureuses vineyard is the undisputed best among Chambolle-Musigny’s premiers crus, lying just below Le Musigny on two parcels totalling 13.35 acres. There are likely several stories to explain the origin of the name, which means “The Lovers.” As is characteristic of Chambolle, Les Amoureuses lies on thin, calcareous soils, which, after a heavy rain, often have to be carried back up the slope to their proper place. The wines of this climat closely approach those of Le Musigny in character, quality and sometimes price. Domaine Louis Jadot is proprietor of .31 acres in this superb vineyard, acquired through the 1985 purchase of Domaine Clair Daü. It yields an exquisitely structured wine with an extraordinary perfume of violets and cherries and subtle red berry flavors on the palate. The silky texture carries into an alluring, graceful finish.
