Henri de Villamont, Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Baudes

Occupying an impressive nineteenth-century building in Savigny-Lès-Beaune, Henri de Villamont is a medium-sized producer that combines an enviable domaine (they are particularly strong in Chambolle-Musigny) with a meticulously sourced négociant range. The cuverie was updated with the latest equipment less than ten years ago, and underneath there is ample storage for barrels in the beautiful double-height cellar. These features give the winemaker flexibility and precision, resulting in excellent expression of the various terroirs on offer. These include some particularly well-sited vineyards: Auxey-Duresses Les Hautés borders Meursault Vireuils, for example, while Chambolle-Musigny Les Baudes lies just below Bonnes-Mares. In each case, because the former is so much less famous, the value for money is exceptional.

2015 vintage. A yield of 40 hectolitres per hectare. Harvest is 100% destemed at 100%. Vineyards are 40 years old.The duration of the maturing is 14 months. This Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru “Les Groseilles” is a very elegant and supple wine with a deep garnet colour and intense aroma of raspberries, strawberries, violets and undergrowth. The body is emphasised by a great smoothness. Thanks to its low acidity, this wine grows to the recognition by leaving a strong sensation in mouth. It is really a very fresh wine. Pairings: Pork loin, roast pigeon, duck or soft cheeses.
