Albert Bichot Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Chabiots 2016 (4944)

France - Burgundy - Cote de Nuits - Chambolle-Musigny
Pinot Noir

Jancis Robinson: Black cherry, fine tannic grip, refreshing acid. Intense dark fruit that has the power to last. Dark smoky finish with gorgeously refreshing crispness. Well defined and luxurious and has all the elegance of Chambolle. 17.5/20


Tim Atkin MW: 93 Points


Wine Advocate, Neal Martin: The 2016 Chambolle Musigny 1er Cru les Chabiots was picked on 25 September, includes 30% whole bunch fruit and 35% new oak barrels. It has a pretty bouquet, quite pure considering that the appellation was affected by frost, with subtle rose petal scents filtering through the crushed strawberry fruit with a touch of cold stone. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannin, nicely poised with a fresh, quite lithe and harmonious finish that lingers in the mouth. Very fine. 90-92 Points

Professional Reviews

Jasper Morris MW

Medium deep colour, slightly weaker rim, hard to find the nose at first. Quite fine boned, a delicate Chambolle with good persistence but lesser presence at the front. I Iike the quality of the fruit though, with some fresh cherries at the back.



A wonderfully pure and expressive nose offers up notes of essence of red currant, violet, spice and a hint of tea. The sleek, intense and lightly mineral-inflected middle weight flavors that are denser than usual, delivering sneaky good length. This is lovely and very Chambolle in character. 2026+


Wine Spectator

Pretty berry, rose, sandalwood and vanilla notes grace this silky, delicate red. Beautifully balanced and almost seamless in texture, making this approachable now, Should age well. Drink now through 2035.
