Reviews 92-94 points Wine Advocate "...soars from the glass with aromas of ripe raspberries and cherries that mingle with nuances of licorice, rose petals and dark chocolate. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, ample and generous, with a gourmand and expressive core of fruit, velvety tannins and succulent balancing acids. (WK)"

The Domaine's portfolio brims with variety, featuring an ensemble of eleven Premier Cru bottlings and meticulously crafted Bourgogne and village wines from Chambolle-Musigny's elite terroirs. Hailed as a "master class in the Premier Crus of Chambolle-Musigny," the wines are celebrated for their finesse, purity, and elegant expressions of terroir.
Spread across 5.86 hectares within Chambolle and adjacent Gilly-les-Citeaux, Barthod's vineyards thrive in a landscape characterized by limestone gravel and scanty topsoil, a terroir configuration that imbues the wines with their celebrated finesse and delicacy. The vineyards, with an average vine age of over 30 years, yield moderate harvests due to rigorous pruning and occasional green harvesting.
Notable parcels include Fuées, Cras, Baudes, and Veroilles that echo facets of the neighboring Grand Cru Bonnes Mares and the recently acquired Aux Combottes. The centrally positioned Charmes amalgamate the quintessence of Chambolle, while Beaux Bruns and Châtelots offer intriguing counterpoints to each other.
Barthod adheres to traditional vinification techniques, including partial destemming and the exclusive use of natural yeasts, which encourage an initial maceration period varying from 2 to 5 days. Post-fermentation, the wines mature for about 20 months in small barrels, with 20% to 25% being new. This meticulous process results in wines of profound age-worthiness that promise an immersive exploration of Chambolle-Musigny's distinct terroir.
