The village designated Les Cras vineyard site sits just below the 1er Cru of the same name. Superbly situated, the soils are a mix of iron rich clay and limestone rock. Grapes are hand-harvested and then carried in small wooden boxes to the cellar, where they are sorted. Fermentation takes place for 15 days in open wooden vats at a controlled temperature, with punching down. The wine is aged for 18 months in French oak barrels, 25% of which are new.TASTING NOTES
Elegant and stylish, Chambolle-Musigny is known for its deep intense red and black fruits with a subtle power in depth and finish. It ages well and can be kept for 10 years. Pairs with red meats, chicken with wild mushroom sauces and most cheeses.
