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
Interestingly, this is a bit more elegant than the Combottes with a very floral nose of rose petal, red berry fruit, earth and wet stone that precedes the smooth middle weight flavors that possess lovely detail and ample underlying tension on the firm finish.

90-92 Points Robert Parker Wine Advocate
The 2009 Chambolle-Musigny Les Chatelots possesses tons of sheer vibrancy and polish. An expressive, warm bouquet leads to red berries, rose petals and crushed flowers. The Chatelots is beautifully centered, with a saline, resonant finish that adds focus. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2022.
