Assembling several plots including Les Baudes en 1st Cru and Les Argillières which adjoins the immense Musigny!
Red clay, a rare shade in the Côte de Nuits, offers this wine a delicate and caressing soul. Born from the assemblage of several climates between Vougeot and Morey-Saint-Denis, Les Véroilles, Les Argillères, the famous climate Les Baudes, Les Condemennes and Les Chardannes, its powerful temperament, solidly framed, belies the reputation of "female wine" made in The Chambolle-Musigny.
Alfred Hitchcock loved Burgundy wine and, above all, Chambolle-Musigny. His cellar in Bel Air, Los Angeles, was full of them. It is easy to understand why a bottle of Burgundy wine is at the heart of the plot of one of his most dramatic films, The Chains (Notorious, 1946), Cary Grant and Ingrid Bergman discover secrets... Atomic!
Known and known under this name since the Middle Ages, the Argillères evoke the presence of very clay marls mixed with the active limestone of the vineyard. This beautiful rocky terrace overlooks the landscape like the first balcony of an Italian-style theatre. We find here on a Gallo-Roman habitat that, little by little, gives way to the vines. At the time of the great dukes of Burgundy, in the 14th and 15th centuries, it belonged to one of the great families of their entourage, offering the duchy several chamberlains and a governor. Philippe le Bon, Charles the Bold enjoy this wine at their table in their palaces in Flanders. In the 17th and 18th centuries, the Chambolle vineyard belonged to the fathers of the Oratory in Dijon, to the great prior of Champagne, to religious communities, to the lineages of Burgundian parliamentarians.
The Chardannes? Probably a land once rich in thistles. The Condemennes? It is an ancient stately land exploited in sharecropping. As for the Veroilles, they report a slight depression, a val.
Location: In the middle of the Côte de Nuits, Chambolle-Musigny has made a nice place in the sun of the Grands Crus. The Argillères enjoy a privileged site. Halfway down the hillside, this climate has as its neighbour the bright Musigny which is adjacent to it. A stone's throw from the Lovers, it is all fire. We also have other plots in the Chambolle-Musigny appellation: Les Chardannes on the part of the vineyard near Morey-Saint-Denis, Les Condemennes in the vicinity of the Premier Cru Les Charmes, Les Véroilles extremely well located since the Grand Cru Les Bonnes Mares and the Baudes, a climate classified as Premier Cru, located just below the Good Mares.
