More than 80% of this exceptional, village level Chambolle comes from the Premier Cru Les Baudes, which lies just across the Route des Grands Crus from Bonnes Mares. The balance is from a vineyard called Les Véroilles, uphill of Bonnes-Mares, which is not a First Growth, but is superbly placed, producing perfumed, elegant wine. Just 5 barrels were made, yielding less than 1500 bottles. Colour is solid purple, with the special aromatics and finesse we love to find in this village. The wine is richly-built, silkily textured, creamy and long with completely charming tannins and delicate length (for drinking 2020-2028+).
