Justerini & Brooks Tasting note
Ghislaine Barthod, Chambolle Musigny, Les Fuées, 1er Cru, 2001

Plenty of minerals, snap and richness in this, heaps of damson and plum. A real pedigree showing vast concentration and real finesse.

Neal Martin, Vinous
The 2001 Chambolle-Musigny Les Fuées 1er Cru is not a wine that I have tasted before. Showing moderate signs of bricking, it has a slightly herbaceous nose, missing a little red fruit and developing a light ferrous scent. The palate is fully matured with light tannins, a little rustic in style and just needing more weight on the back end. This Fuées is a bit ephemeral for me. Tasted at Hatched restaurant in London.

Ghislaine Barthod

The Domaine Barthod-Noellat was founded when Gaston Barthod, whose family originated in the Jura, married into the Noellat family. He took over the direction of the Domaine after finishing his military service in the 1950s. Then in the 1980s his daughter, Ghislaine, served her apprenticeship under him and by the early nineties was making the wine. Ghislaine has made this a benchmark for Chambolle growers and lovers alike. Terroir and grape variety are respected in the winemaking process, vineyard work is hard, intervention minimal and new oak kept to an average of 30%. The ethos here is to pick ripe but on the early side, to retain the birghtness of Pinot Noir. Grapes are de-stalked for fermentation. Her outstanding plots of old vines in Les Fuées and Les Charmes produce wines that typify the elegance and sophistication of Chambolle. The Véroilles however is possibly the more interesting cuvée, if less renowned. It is one of the highest Chambolle vineyards and is situated next to Bonnes Mares and duly reflects the style of its Grand Cru neighbour. Here, charm is aligned to a vibrant acidity and grainy tannins giving a firm grip and sound framework to its ripe fruit.
