Chambolle Musigny 1er Cru aux Croix 2021 Christian Clerget


In stock


Along with the lieus dits of les Condemennes and Clos de l’Orme this is one of the finest vineyards in the Cotes de Nuits not to be of 1er Cru status. The Clergets have 12 tiny parcels in what is already a small vineyard. They are largely planted north to south as the land slopes down from 1er Cru aux Echanges. The first blast of early morning sun to this east facing land gets the plants going and results in a wine of power and muscle. A chewy and masculine red and, unlike the rest of this fine range, it will need a few extra years. 2028 to 2035.

Producer Information: Christian Clerget

The first time I met Christian he was in a hurry to catch a plane to Nepal and climb the 7th or 8th highest peak in the world. Fortunately his wife Isabelle and daughter Justine are equal parts
of a wonderful family who strive to express what their vineyards offer. As Christian says, ‘don’t try to cheat the vines’.

Justine is in charge now though and starting to make her mark. She is forging ahead with biodynamics and using whole bunch fermentation for almost a third of the harvest.
