Barthod 1er Cru Beaux Bruns 17750 ml
Each vintage of Ghislaine's wines are such a magnificent expression of the Chambolle terroir that we request an allocation of all three of her classifications. The regional wine is harvested from vineyards both within and without the Chambolle village and thus has the largest catchment area: Bourgogne Rouge. This particular bottling is her village wine made from several parcels within the appellation. The Premier Cru, Aux Beaux Bruns, is from a single vineyard and represents her best efforts. No waiting for this one to open up ¬ it is ready to drink now. This village wine is light and effortless on the palate, full of dark red fruits and enough oak and tannin to balance it perfectly. Her insistence on purity of fruit, vineyard expression and minimal intervention all come together here.
