Description

A discreet touch of wood sets off elegant, pure and airy red currant and soft floral aromas. The supple and markedly forward medium weight flavors possess a lovely sense of underlying tension that adds lift to the stony and lacy finish that displays a touch of austerity. A classic Chambolle villages of finesse and grace. - BH87-89

The 2014 Chambolle Musigny Villages, which sees 40% new oak, offers impressive volume and generosity on the nose with blackberry and boysenberry scents, a touch of cooked meat lending a savory touch. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannin. There is good depth here, nice freshness with that savory element continuing through to the finish, although I would have liked half as much new wood.- WA87-89

The Winery

The domaine was established in 1988 when the parents of Anne-Françoise, Jean and Jeanine Gros of Vosne-Romanée decided to let go of a few parcels of the family domaine (The domaine was initially known under the names of Gros-Renaudot, then Louis Gros, and after inheritance, Jean Gros).

At the same time Anne-Françoise aquired a domaine in Flagey-Échezeaux, and later with her husband, François Parent, purchased a vineyard in Savigny-les-Beaune.

Shortly thereafter, François added to the domaine his own vineyards in Pommard that he inherited from his family. Being the 13th generation of winemakers, he continues to aquire knowledge and techniques that enable him to vinify his wines so that they express the typicity and complexity of the aromas of the Pinot Noir.

Together they decided to unite the two domaines and install in Beaune the caves, cuverie and buildings.
