Reviews 92-94 points Wine Advocate "Aromas of wild plums, cassis and ripe cherries mingling with savory bass notes and a touch of new oak in an incipiently complex bouquet introduce the 2017 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Fuees, a medium to full-bodied wine with excellent concentration and an ample chassis of fine but firm, chalky tannins that was among the most reserved in the Barthod cellar when I tasted it. That reserve, however, holds great promise for the future, as this gives every indication of being a superb Fuees in the making. (WK)" 91-94 points Burghound "A slightly more deeply pitched nose that includes notes of dark raspberry and plum is at once spicier and a bit more floral in character as well. There is fine volume and punch to the dense and powerful yet seductively textured medium-bodied flavors that brim with both dry extract and an almost pungent minerality on the highly complex and beautifully persistent finish. Terrific. (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.
