"Chambolle-Musigny is a red wine, often regarded as the most "feminine" wine of the Côte de Nuits; its intensity and delicacy express themselves with elegance and subtlety. To the eye, it presents a bright ruby hue with luminous highlights. It may darken a little over time but with no loss of impact. Its bouquet, easily recognizable, is composed of violet and small red fruits (raspberry, strawberry). With further aging it tends towards spiced ripe fruits and prune, or towards truffle, underbrush and animal notes. Rich, fragrant and complex, it lines the palate with silk and lace. Its delicate but fleshy texture in no way detracts from its solid and durable structure. On the sweet side with little trace of acidity, its tannins remain silky smooth." - The Bourgogne Wine Board
"Feusselottes" indicates a bumpy soil and shaped small pits. Located in the heart of the village, the vine thrives on a soil composed of red silt from the Combe. This shallow soil intensifies the subtle minerality of the wine.
