Red Burgundy As It Should Be:
2020 Bertheau Chambolle-Musigny

Posted by Ian McFadden

Bertheau's Chambolle is a Burgundy of supreme gracefulness and understatement.

It's a bottle I reach for often.

The wine captures the lacy perfumed delicacy of Chambolle so well.

Along with Jouan, Bertheau epitomizes subtle, graceful, and understated Burgundy. It's a style that I really enjoy. 

I'm happy that Bertheau's Chambolle is one of our first 2020 red Burgundy offerings. 

The 2020 red Burgundy vintage is astonishing. It combines a dark, saturating intensity and vibrancy, and lift. I share the common opinion that I haven't tasted a vintage quite like it. 

Bertheau thrives in ripe vintages. The wines amazingly take the ripeness of the 2020 vintage and render it with an incredible balance and precision. The 2020 Chambolle offers up a seductive velvety texture and aromatic complexity. 

I'm always excited to offer the Chambolle AC. Not many wines at this price point get to the heart of what makes red Burgundy beautiful the way that Bertheau's Chambolle does.

2020 Bertheau, F Chambolle-Musigny

750 ml


Burghound: "Ripe and very fresh aromas include those of both red and blue pinot fruit laced with subtle spice wisps. The nicely rich, plump and rounded middle weight flavors conclude in a mildly warm if persistent finale. This refreshing effort should be approachable young."
