Domaine Bertheau Chambolle-Musigny 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

A very hands-off winemaker, François Bertheau allows the wines to express themselves–there is very little manipulation, very little racking, very little new wood (only 10% in total), and each wine is left to evolve slowly in barrel. These are classic Chambolles, emphasizing finesse, elegance, high-toned aromatics and silky textures. They typically drink well immediately upon release and remain balanced with aging–their approachability should not be confused with shorter life spans because these wines age beautifully. Wines are vinified in stainless steel and cement cuves for 14 – 16 days. Wines are aged in oak barrels (20% new) for 18 months.
