Chambolle-Musigny has been a controlled appellation of origin (AOC) since 1936. Located 6 kilometers north of Nuits-Saint-Georges, the Chambolle-Musigny appellation is a village appellation and produces 24 first growths of Burgundy.
The vineyard covers nearly 150 hectares, of which 56 hectares are devoted to the premier crus of Burgundy. The soils of the vineyards are composed of limestone and gravel. The grape variety harvested there is Pinot Noir. Full of finesse, silkiness and elegance, the wines of Chambolle-Musigny are very popular.
Wines from the Chambolle-Musigny appellation have less aging potential than other Burgundy wine appellations. We estimate 3 to 15 years of cellar sleep for a bottle, or even more for the greatest vintages.
