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

89-91 Points Allen Meadows
An equally fresh but somewhat more deeply pitched nose of red and blue berry fruit trimmed in touches of earth and stone where the latter elements can also be found on the refined, delicate and silky-textured flavors, all wrapped in a mouth coating finish of good length and dusty tannins. This is almost ’08-like in its energy and underlying tension.

90-92 Points Robert Parker Wine Advocate
The 2009 Chambolle-Musigny Les Combottes presents a relatively dark side of Chambolle in its deep layers of fruit, minerals and spices. This shows terrific length and energy through to the focused finish. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2022.
