Chambolle Benchmark: 2017 Barthod Chambolle-Musigny

Posted by Ian McFadden

I've been on a Chambolle kick lately, and frankly, I feel no need to stop. The village makes some of the most beautiful expressions of red Burgundy.

Today, I'm happy to offer Barthod's 2017 Chambolle. It's been quite some time since we've been able to offer Barthod, and it feels like a real luxury to be able to offer them today.

Long-time Burgundy fans buy Barthod every vintage, without hesitation.

The wines are in a word: bulletproof. Barthod just doesn't miss, and her Chambolles show a shimmering clarity and heartbreakingly silky elegance that are pretty much archetypical examples of the region.

Barthod's calling cards are purity, density, and finesse. There's an unwavering honesty to the wines.

The 2017 highlights Barthod's style. Sourced from multiple parcels throughout the village, the Chambolle always boasts a beautiful sense of completeness and aromatic complexity. The 2017 is animated by a tense mineral core with bright red fruits, spice, and gentle earthy notes.

Before closing, I should mention that quantities are very limited, and we expect a strong response. People tend to jump at the chance to buy Barthod.

To order, email or call the store at (212) 980-9463.

2017 Barthod Chambolle-Musigny

Special Bottle Price: $89.95

Burghound: "Here too the aromas of plum, violet and blueberry are super-fresh and expressive. The sleek, intense and beguilingly delicious middle weight flavors exude a subtle minerality onto the firm and relatively serious finish. This is perhaps less elegant than it usually is as it's more structured but it may well compensate by developing even better depth over time."
