Nestled in he heart of the Cote de Nuits, Chambolle-Musigny has long been renowned for producing some of Burgundy’s most finessed and feminine Pinot Noirs. The appellation is blessed by a complex geology consisting of a top layer of limestone that covers a Jurassic subsoil combined with heat retaining, free draining alluvial gravel. The appellation lies 250-300 meters above sea level with has favourable south / south-east facing slopes and is home to 24 Premier Cru and 2 Grand Cru vineyard sites.
Domaine Amiot-Servelle began producing wine in 1989 from 7 hectares of vineyards that have been criticised organic since 2008. All grapes are harvested by hand and undergo a cold pre-fermentation maceration for 4-5 days to enhance the aroma characteristics before being fermented in steel. All wines are matured in French oak (15-50% new) for 16-18 months and are minimally filtered to enhance texture.
This Chambolle-Musigny has seen 18 months French oak ageing (20-30% new) and benefits hugely from the soli diversity in the appellation offering greater complexity on the palate. Although enjoyable in youth this wine deserves a minimum 5 years before it is drunk and has potential for 10-20 years ageing potential.
It is against the law to sell or supply alcohol to, or to obtain alcohol on behalf of, a person under the age of 18 years.
