The village of Chambolle-Musigny lies in the very heart of the Côte de Nuits. The Musigny vineyards lie above the Clos de Vougeot between the Premier Cru climat Les Amoureuses and the Grand Cru Échezeaux.
Red Musigny has a deep but delicate coloration between crimson and magenta. Its bouquet evokes wild-rose, violet, and morning dew, as well as blackcurrant and raspberry. With age it develops notes of leather, fur and humus. The sappy body is wonderfully balanced, tannic and complex, long in the mouth, and perfectly well-bred. An unusual feature of the appellation is the 0,66 hectares of Chardonnay planted here by the De Vogüé family. White Musigny is in a class of its own with its flamboyant character and its bouquet of violet and almond.
