Description

Appellation: Located on the Côte de Nuits between Clos de Vougeot and Morey-Saint-Denis, Chambolle-Musigny produces exclusively red wines. Chambolle-Musigny wines are considered to be the most feminine in Burgundy thanks to their delicacy and elegance.

«Les Lavrottes» are located just under the Bonnes Mares Grand Cru and refers to a
limestone soil in the form of a slab of stones called Lave;   Soil: Marl limestone

Varietal100% Pinot Noir

Harvest: The grapes are cut and sorted by hand.

Vinification: The grapes are destalked and then placed between 2 and 4 days in steel vat for pre-fermentation maceration. The vinification is done in oak barrels.

Ageing: The wine is aged in oak barrels, 20% of which are new for 10 to 12 months.

Tasting:  A bright ruby hue with luminous highlights. It may darken a little over time.
Its bouquet is composed of violet and small red fruit. With ageing it tends towards spiced ripe fruits or truffle and animal notes.
Rich and complex, it lines the palate with silk and lace. Its delicate texture in no way detracts from its solid and durable structure. Its tannins remain silky smooth.

Food pairing:  With a personality that allies power and feminity, it demands high-flavoured and sophisticated dishes like feathered game, well-roasted lamb or a free range capon. Cheeses - preferably mild like Brillat-Savarin, Cîteaux, or Chaource.
