Jean-Claude Boisset Chambolle Musigny 2018
Region: Côte de Nuits , Burgundy, France
Bottle size: 75cl

Chambolle-Musigny is one of the smallest and most parcellated appellations of the Côte de Nuits whose Grand Crus are among Burgundy's rarest and most collectable wines. Boisset's Village Chambolle comes from massale selected vines from 5 'lieux dits' located around the village, including Creux Baissants, Pas de Chat, Derrière le Four and the famed Clos de l'Orme, which many growers believe to be as good as their Premier Cru sites. Boisset's Chambolle vines have been farmed organically since 2008.
