Chambolle-Musigny has two grand crus on either side of the village. Musigny to the south while travelling north towards Morey-Saint-Denis is

Bonnes-Mares with 15 hectares under vine. The main section lies in Chambolle-Musigny itself and 1.5 hectares rests within Morey-Saint-Denis.

Mid-slope at an altitude of 270 to 300 metres, this east facing plot has two distinct soil types broadly defined by a vineyard track which runs

from the top at the Morey end in a diagonal line to the middle of Les Fuées at Chambolle. Above this line is "terres blanches" a white marl rich

in fossilised oysters, below it "terres rouges" heavier red-brown soils with larger proportions of clay. These red soils produce powerful muscular

wines whereas the "terres blanche" soils impart more finesse and minerality. 

This was extremely toasty from barrel and while the wood is hardly subtle now that the wine is in bottle, it is not quite so overwhelming. 

The big and muscular flavors are round, full and rich with good concentration and depth and this finishes with good punch and length.

Lovely stuff rendered in a distinctly oaky style that should benefit from 7 to 8 years of bottle age.
