Chambolle Musigny is a vineyard village located 17 kilometers in the south of Dijon, on the Côte de Nuits . This vineyard extends around the village on almost 153 hectares to produce exclusively Red wines from the Pinot Noir grape. The rare white wines produced on this terroir, do not obtain the appellation AOC Chambolle Musigny . I remember having tasted such a wine, not without interest, but in no case at the level of the fabulous Red wines that count this name. Only the Grand Cru "Musigny" produces both colors, and there are hardly more than 3,000 bottles that are produced in White: Law of rarity, Musigny Blanc is expensive. We can specify here that it is the only white wine promoted to the rank of Grand Cru of the Côte de Nuits. A wine of collector. The other Grand Cru of the vineyard of Chambolle Musigny is the "Bonnes Mares”. The appellation also counts 24 Climats classified as Premier Cru, including the Feusselottes and the Amoureuses. 31 localities can also be specified on the label, however the northern vineyard, made up of a more disparate and fragmented terroir, pushes the vine growers to make assemblages of parcels in order to balance the cuvées. All the wines of Chambolle Musigny are not worth, but the majority is carried by notes of flowers, especially violets, and red fruits. It is often said that the wines of the appellation are, like those of Volnay for the Côte de Beaune, the most feminine wines of the Côte de Nuits. This is not false, but like all Burgundy wines , patience is the right thing to do, and the necessary care.
