Domaine Ghislaine Barthod Chambolle Musigny les Chatelots 2008

SKU 37358


The "Chatelots", a holding of about one-quarter hectare is just now (written as of 2012) revealing its identity as its vines reach a pleasant point of maturity (about 25 years old). Located in the central part of Chambolle, this cru presents itself as an excellent cross between the elegant and fine aromatics that this appellation is noted for married to a backbone of graceful but solid tannins.

Wine AdvocateBarthod's 2008 Chambolle-Musigny Les Chatelots displays scents and flavors of ginger- and mace-dusted, framboise distillate-sprinkled black raspberry. Fruit skin tartness and fruit pit piquancy add invigorating to a firm, bright palate presence, leading to a finish of energetic tenacity. This wound-up Pinot should keep going for the better part of a decade.
