Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Chabiots - right next door to Les Amoureuses. 4 Vintages available

 

Bichot Chabiots 4 Vintages header
Classic Chambolle-Musigny from a great site....
 
Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Chabiots is a small but beautifully sited vineyard. It is, in effect, an extension of the amazing Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Amoureuses. The Grand Cru Musigny is just a stone's throw away. In fact many consider Les Chabiots to be a mini-Amoureuses with similar aromatic qualities and light-on-its-feet character.
 
"Chabiots" is thought to refer to the word "caboche", from the vulgar latin word Capum (head), due to the fact that rocks and stony blocks the size of a head, and weighing between 50 and 200 kg, were found at a depth of 40-60 cm when the soil here was ploughed for the planting of vines.
There are not a lot of makers and a quick glance at Burghound will confirm that Bichot are the premier maker.
Les Chabiots is around 1/3 of the price of Les Amoureuses (click here to see what Amoureuses we have available). For lovers of complex, aromatic Chambolle-Musigny this is a wine to savour. If you love Les Amoureuses I am sure you will also love Les Chabiots.
Don't miss our special prices today. Put together a run of 4 different (but very good) vintages.

Bichot Chabiots Label
Vinous - Neal Martin:  
The 2017 Chambolle-Musigny Les Chabiots 1er Cru has a wonderful, expressive red cherry and crushed strawberry nose with beguiling floral aromas. The medium-bodied palate offers supple tannin, finely pitched acidity and a long, poised, silky-smooth finish. A great Chambolle from winemaker Alain Serveau. (Drink between 2022-2034). 92-94 Points
Bill Nanson "The Burgundy Report": Continuity of Musigny above Amoureuses. Hmm - a very different nose a sort of melting density of aroma. Silky but intense, a flavour that slowly fills all the spaces in your mouth - today touched by oak but that will fade. A wine that's more about shape and texture than depth of flavour today - clearly concentrated though. Hard to judge today - it's clearly a super wine, but I'm unsure of the direction it will take. Worth buying a few bottles to keep tabs!

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. 93 Points
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.

Albert Bichot Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Chabiots 2015
Landed Price $245.00
Pre Arrival Price $179.00

Bichot Chabiots Label
Wine Advocate - Neal Martin
Located in the middle of the slope, close to Les Amoureuses, Les Chabiots is a comparatively little known Premier Cru. Less concentrated than its more famous neighbour, but this has some of the same perfume and balance. Floral, refreshing and fine. 2020-26. 94 Points
Burghound: 
This is aromatically quite similar to the Sentiers with perhaps just a bit more floral character along with a hint of menthol. The lacy and lilting middle weight flavors dance across the palate while possessing a gorgeous mouthfeel that is in no small part thanks to the sleek, balanced and focused finish. Chabiots rarely gets much better than this. (Drink starting 2027). 93 Points
Albert Bichot Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Chabiots 2014
Landed Price $235.00
Pre Arrival Price $159.00

Bichot Chabiots Label Decanter: 
Made on the négociant side of the Bichot business, this is a an ethereal, approachable Pinot Noir from a great vintage in Burgundy. Freshness and purity of expressive red cherry and cranberry with lifted violet notes. Light-bodied but complex, layered and long, with a coolness from limestone soils. It spends 16 months in 50% new oak and is well integrated and unforced, with the perfumed fruit shining through. Very enjoyable. (Drink between 2017-2027). 93 Points
Wine Enthusiast - Roger Voss: 
While this wine has generous swathes of ripe fruit, it also has plenty of the dark tannins that are found in the northern part of the appellation. It is dense in character, packed equally with concentrated tannins and with red-berry fruits. The wine will age well; drink from 2022. 93 Points

Vosne lunch Ryne March 2019 header
Let's Drink Vosne-Romanee! Lunch at Ryne. Sunday 3 March 2019
What better way to spend a Sunday afternoon? 12 Different Vosne-Romanee and a 4-course menu
 
We all love Vosne-Romanee - it's Burgundy's top red wine commune. To kick start 2019 we have a terrific Sunday lunch planned at Ryne featuring 12 different Vosne-Romanee.

We've split the wines into three brackets starting with a bracket of 4 Villages Vosne-Romanee. These will allow you to hone the palate and get an idea of the style of Vosne-Romanee. 

We'll then move on to the next bracket featuring 4 lieux-dits. Here the varying terroirs of Vosne-Romanee can be explored with wines from all corners of the Vosne compass. 

To finish we have an intriguing Premier Cru bracket starting with the famous Les Suchots and concluding with 3 different Les Beaux Monts, one of my favourite vineyards. There's a nice little menage a trois here between maker and vintage.

We have 6 wines from each of the 2016 and 2015 vintages. They are both great - it is a matter of style as to which you prefer. This is a great opportunity to taste and compare.
 
The lunch will be at Ryne. Chef Donovan Cooke will prepare a matching 4-course menu.
