For many people, Chambolle Musigny is the platonic ideal in red Burgundy.
Great Chambolle is silky and suave while offering plenty of structure and mystery, and for traditionalists hunting Chambolle that runs the gamut of enjoyment, Barthod is never far from the top of their lists.
Today, I'm happy to offer Barthod's 2018 Chambolle-Musigny Villages for $99.95 per bottle.
There is much anticipation every year when we get her wines and they never last for very long, across the entire range. One of the things that makes the Barthod wines so compelling is how she lets the vintage speak through the wines while retaining her indelible style of dark solid power matched with purity and levity. 2018 is certainly a ripe vintage and that shows in the density and intensity of the wines, but the freshness and gentle hand that she possesses is most certainly present.
Every wine that Ghislaine Barthod makes is captivating for what it is, but we find ourselves seeking out the AC Chambolle frequently. It possesses much of the immediacy that people love so much about her Bourgogne Rouge, but also paints a picture of what is capable from her 1er crus with time in the cellar. This wine is sourced from multiple parcels throughout Chambolle, and the wine tends to strike a chord of happiness, both aromatically and on the palate. It's one we really enjoy popping and in a vintage like 2018, it promises to deliver a really powerful drinking experience.
We never have enough Barthod and our parcel this year is quite limited. Please give us your ideal order, and we will try our best.

Burghound: "A whiff of reduction is just enough to shave the top notes from the otherwise attractive and ripe aromas of black cherry, spice and raspberry. The sleek, rich and vibrant flavors possess very good volume, indeed they are attractively succulent, all wrapped in a raspy and compact finish where a hint of wood arises."
