Ghislaine Barthod’s domaine originated in the 1920s with Marcel Noëllat, whose daughter married Gaston Barthod – a soldier stationed in Dijon who came to buy some wine and got the girl as well. He gave up military life for the vineyards in ’60.

His daughter, Ghislaine, and her partner, Louis Boillot, bought their current premises overlooking Premier Cru Les Feusselottes in ’86. Though they share the team who work the vineyards, the vinification and commercial aspects of their businesses are kept separate.

The domaine has an incomparable range of Chambolle-Musigny terroirs, with 11 separate Premier Cru bottlings and highly regarded Bourgogne and village wines.

Tasting Notes

90-92 Points Allen Meadows
A complex and pungent nose of red pinot fruit, warm earth, subtle spice and a hint of game leads to rich, full and generous flavors though here there is clearly more muscle and mid-palate depth. This is quite fresh in the mouth with energy and a lovely underlying tension on the presently somewhat austere finish. I quite like this and it’s built to age as the balance is impeccable.

91-92 Points Robert Parker Wine Advocate
From just below Bonnes Mares, a 2005 Chambolle-Musigny Les Baudes exudes a candied yet at the same time faintly tart cherry and black raspberry character, with sage, sassafras and resin overtones very reminiscent of its Grand Cru neighbor, and a silky, refined texture to a palate that, however, never lacks for brightness. Chartreuse-like and red-fruited, the finish here resembles an elixir, yet with persistent freshness of fruit, the pungency of herbs and a faint nip of white pepper offering counterpoint.
