One of Burgundy’s oldest and greatest estates, this Domaine has been owned by the same family since 1450. Their 30 hectares of vines that surround the village of Chambolle-Musigny include a staggering 7.25 hectares of the hallowed Musigny vineyard, which is 80% of its entire surface. Since the mid-late eighties François Millet and Jean-Luc Pépin have been guiding this Domaine back to the top and it is now once again a mecca for every Burgundy lover. They produce wines with an obsessive attention to detail, with a view to producing incredibly fine wines that respect terroir and the whims of mother nature
A fabulous Grand Cru vineyard of 15 hectares situated predominantly in the commune of Chambolle-Musigny, with a tiny 1.5 ha overlapping into Morey-St-Denis. The wines are typically sturdy, mineral and muscular - Burgundies of great stature that are built to last. The anomaly would be wines that come from the Morey St Denis side bordering Clos de Tart, here they are powerful but considerably more floral, fruity and elegant than other Bonnes Mares, Bruno Clair's is an exquisite example. Ownership accross the whole vineyard area is spread over more than 30 proprietors, the largest being Domaine Comte de Vogüé. There are many fine producers of Bonnes Mares up and down the Côte de Nuits, the most notable based in Chambolle-Musigny itself are Mugnier, Roumier and Groffier.
