Chambolle-Musigny is a small commune in the Côte de Nuits subregion of Burgundy. It has a population of less than 400 but enjoys a historical and widespread reputation for its high quality wines. The country produces almost exclusively red Pinot Noir wines. The classic Chambolle-Musigny wine is powerful, yet refined and fragrant. Along with Vosne-Romanée and Gevrey-Chambertin, the village is believed to produce some of the best Pinot Noir wines on earth. The scent that characterizes the wines has earned Chambolle the reputation of 'Volnay' of the Côte de Nuits. In Chambolle, the Cheron estate is made up of a dozen plots spread over different areas of the village, for a total of 1.80 hectares. Two thirds of the vines are over 60 years old, for an average yield of 38-40 hl / ha. The main parcels, Condemennes and Clos de l'Orme, are located in the center of the hill, on a soil composed of a thick layer of very draining and alkaline debris. The style of the estate aims to favor the maximum expression of the fruity and varietal aromas of the Pinot. Extending the shelf life in wood allows for optimal extraction of color and soft and silky tannins. The refinement of the refinement strengthens the roundness and brings a subtle toasted wood note. Coming from a mosaic of soils, the final assembly of Chambolle reveals typical characteristics of the appellation: small red fruits, elegance, delicacy, but at the same time roundness and softness.
