About This Wine

The Chambolle 1er Cru bottling combines five small 1er Cru parcels in Chambolle. The plots are simply too small to bottle individually. There seems to be some wisdom at work here because the wine has an impressive sense of completeness, along with great tension and balance.

The 2016 is the result of a very low yielding vintage. This consolidated all of the characteristics that make me such a fan of the Chambolle 1er Cru bottling. In general, Drouhin produced incredible 2016s, and it elevated the Chambolle 1er Cru bottling to a shocking level.

This is an especially intense vintage for the wine. It delivers amazing length, gracefulness, and textural appeal. One of the things that I like most about 2016 is how the vintage combines concentration with the flavor profile of a cooler vintage. The 1er Cru explodes with perfume, flowers, and bright red fruits along with possessing a punchy stony mineral core.

The Chambolle 1er Cru has become one of our most popular offerings. This is a bottle that delivers a pedigree and class that may be unrivaled for the price.
