Vineyards situation : Chambolle Musigny lies just north of Vougeot and South of Morey Saint Denis. There are 24 Premiers Crus and 2 Grands Crus. The vineyard is facing east /  south-east, at about 250 to 350 m above sea level.

Characteristics : The chalky soil is relieved by gravel and pebbles and this has a great influence on the supple and fine structure of Chambolle wines.

Wine making : This wine is fermented in vats for 3-4 weeks and aged 12-15 months in oak barrels before bottling.

Winemaker's comments / Gastronomy : Louis Jadot produces a deeply coloured wine which develops a red berries fruits
- and undergrowth aromas when older. Full bodied, delicate this wine has a silky finish. The soil is responsible for Chambolle Musigny's exceptional delicacy and a character not possessed by any other wine of the Côte de Nuits. It will perfectly match with delicate dishes, not too spicy like red meat, game and quite strong cheeses.

Preservation : This wine will certainly improve up to 10 to 12 years in a good cellar (humidity and temperature).
