Michel Magnien Chambolle-Musigny Sentiers 2014

Chambolle takes its name from the bubbling appearance of the “Grône” stream. In 1878 the name of its best cru, “Musigny”, was appended to the village name. This A.O.C. is for red wine only and covers a total area of 182 hectares.

“Sentiers” (paths) simply indicates the presence of trails and paths. Three path intersections can be found on the perimeter of the climat. The vineyards are located on a “sentier” that leads to Clos de Vougeot. Only the Route des Grands Crus separates it from the end of Bonnes Mares, on the edge of Chambolle and Morey. The vines are planted on fairly deep clay soil.

Tasting Notes

This wine possesses a bright, dark red hue. On the nose, lovely musk, herbs and mint notes, with peppery nuances, can be detected. The wine is smooth and sweet on the palate with gorgeous concentrated fruit, full of body and potential, with lovely tannins and a nice length finish.

Food Pairing

It is a perfect accompaniment to jugged hare, Charolles beef roast and fruity, not too fatty, cheeses.
