Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru "La Combe d'Orveau"

Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru "La Combe d'Orveau"

  • The vintage
    • The climatic conditions were very mixed in 2016. The harvests took place later than usual in order to allow the grapes to reach their optimum ripeness levels. Our wines present fruity aromas. The wines are smooth and fleshy. This promises to be a very distinctive vintage.

    • Introduction

      The "La Combe d'Orveau" parcel is situated just above the Musigny Grand Cru. This parcel most probably owes its name to its position in the upper parts of the valley and its south facing exposure: Orveau or le val d'or. It is one of the rare parts of Bourgogne where a Grand Cru, a 1er Cru and a village appellation sit side by side: "En Orveau".

      The grapes are harvested and sorted by hand. The proportion of de-stemmed grapes and whole clusters varies depending on the vintage. The wines are punched down daily in order to extract colour, tannins and aromas from the skin of the grapes. After a 19 day vatting period, the alcoholic fermentation is complete. The free-run wine is run off using a gravity system whilst the marc is pressed slowly and gently in order to extract an exceptionally pure press wine. The wines are aged for 16 months in French oak barrels (40-50% new oak and 50-60% one-wine barrels) which have been selected for their fine grain and moderate toast. The wines are left to age in our hygrometry-controlled cellars at consistent, natural temperatures.
