2009 GHISLAINE BARTHOD Chambolle offer

GHISLAINE BARTHOD, Chambolle Musigny, Burgundy
Burgundy aficionados have long known of the exceptional wines of Ghislaine Barthod though her tiny production and highly sought-after cult status has made the wines difficult to obtain, particularly in a touted vintage such as 2009. What we are able to offer here, a selection of 4 different Chambolle premier cru’s, has only been made possible through years of commitment to a grower through difficult vintages as well as highly-rated ones. –Eric Broege, VINTAGES

There is no better place to learn about the subtleties of Chambolle than in the cellars of Ghislaine Barthod. Every wine I tasted was impeccable. I can’t recommend the wines of this small,  family-run domaine highly enough. ” — A. Galloni, Wine Advocate

Wine Descriptions: all reviews and scores from Wine Advocate

2009 Chambolle Musigny 1er Cru “Les Baudes” Reg. $128; CASE PRICE $97.64 The 2009 Chambolle-Musigny Les Baudes, from a parcel below Bonnes Mares, reveals the more structured, inwardly cool side of Chambolle in its energetic, vibrant fruit. The Baudes shows striking purity and length, with an intense finish and fabulous overall balance. 2014-2029. 93 pts.

2009 Chambolle Musigny 1er Cru “Aux Beaux Bruns” Reg. $128; CASE PRICE $97.64 The 2009 Chambolle-Musigny Les Beaux-Bruns is one of the rounder, sweeter wines in the lineup. The aromatics are less prominent here, but the wine makes up for that with a generous, voluptuous voice in the fruit. Ripe, silky tannins frame the caressing, expansive finish. The Beaux Bruns is the most immediate of these 2009s. 2012-2022. 93 pts.

2009 Chambolle Musigny 1er Cru “Les Cras” Reg. $148; CASE PRICE $113.79 The 2009 Chambolle-Musigny Les Cras shows the powerful, muscular side of Chambolle. This is a decidedly broad-shouldered, strapping wine loaded with dark fruit. Sweet spices, tar and menthol add complexity on the finish. The Cras is another wine that needs a number of years in bottle. Its potential, though, is huge. 2019-2029. 94 pts.

2009 Chambolle Musigny 1er Cru “Les Fuees” Reg. $148; CASE PRICE $113.79 (1.5L $340/$260.10) The 2009 Chambolle-Musigny Les Fuees is dark, rich and expansive. Red fruit, mint, minerals, spices and an array of balsamic notes come together beautifully on the palate. Hints of smoke, incense and tar add an exotic element that is intriguing. The finish is big, explosive and totally convincing. 2014-29. 94 pts.

2009 Chambolle Musigny 1er Cru “Les Charmes” Reg. $148; CASE PRICE $113.79 – SOLD OUT The 2009 Chambolle-Musigny Les Charmes is all about the silkiness of the tannins. This exceptionally elegant, sleek Chambolle flows with superb elegance. Roses, red berries and sweet spices are some of the nuances that emerge from the glass. The finish is polished and expansive, with a closing burst of candied red fruit that leaves a lasting impression. 2014-2029. 94 pts.
