The 2009 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru shows gorgeous village character in an energetic, powerful style. Sweet, sensual fruit emerges with time in the glass, followed by clean, pointed minerality that frames the finish. This is slightly reserved today, but promising. The Chambolle is a blend of five parcels vinified together. Anticipated maturity: 2019-2029.

Technical notes
Site: at the heart of the famous Chambolle-Musigny vineyard, with a nice East exposure. History & tradition: the name of the village Chambolle is probably derived from the Celtic ”cambola”, already reputed for its vineyards in Gallo-Roman times and cultivated by the monks in the Middle Ages. Joseph Drouhin owns several Premier Cru parcels. Since they are too small, these Premier Cru vineyards (Noirots, Hauts Doix, Borniques, Plantes, Combottes) are harvested and vinified together. The name given to this wine is therefore Chambolle-Musigny Premier Cru (since the components of this ”cuvee” are all Premier Crus). Soil: the limestone of the subsoil is of Jurassic age origin, ideally suited for Pinot Noir. Drouhin estate: 1.3 ha. (3.25 acres).
