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

90-93 Points Allen Meadows
A ripe and mildly earthy nose primarily features notes of plum and black cherry that are in keeping with the rich and solidly dense flavors that possess a velvety mouth feel on the dusty, sappy and impressively long and complex finish. A serious Chambolle that will need the better part of a decade to reach its apogee.

92-94 Points Robert Parker Wine Advocate
The 2010 Chambolle-Musigny Les Beaux-Bruns is stellar in this vintage. There is an airiness and inner perfume that gives the 2010 a measure of elegance that is sometimes missing in this wine, given its tendency to be on the big side. All of the elements are beautifully balanced on the suave mid-palate and dark, inviting finish. The sensual side of Chambolle comes through in spades. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2028.
