Reviews 93-95 points Wine Advocate "...unfurls in the glass with a youthfully reticent bouquet of raspberries, cherries, rose petal and orange rind. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, satiny-textured and multidimensional, with stunning depth and concentration at the core, mouthwatering acids and a searingly intense, mineral finish. (WK)" 92 points Vinous "...featuring strawberry cheesecake and vanilla; the oak is a little strong here. The palate is medium-bodied and quite structured, with firm, grippy tannins and a granular texture. (NM)" 92-94 points Burghound "Interestingly this is aromatically quite similar to the Veroilles if perhaps just a bit more elegant and layered. The racy, intense and overtly mineral-driven medium weight flavors possess almost painful punch along with chiseled delineation on the austere, serious and compact yet superbly long finish. (AM)"

About Domaine Ghislaine Barthod

Domaine Ghislaine Barthod, positioned in the heart of Burgundy, stands as a shining exemplar of Chambolle-Musigny wines. Ghislaine Barthod, who honed her winemaking craft under the mentorship of her father, Gaston, has been the creative force behind the winery since the 1980s. Her dynamic approach to both vineyard management and vinification has heightened the fame of the Barthod name and fortified the estate's reputation globally.

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.
