Anne et Hervé Sigaut - Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru 'Les Sentiers' 2020


A Vinonueva favorite from the Sigaut range and with tremendous aging potential. Given current prices in Burgundy, this wine is a very smart buy for those looking for truly great and honest wines to drink and enjoy in good company.

In the northern part of the appellation, below the grand cru Bonnes-Mares, the soil is composed of a lot of clay. In this terroir, you can find plenty of limestone from various geological eras. This explains the diversity of the soil and subsoil. The Côte de Nuits in miniature.

These vines were planted in 1947. The oldest plot of the winery is also the cuvée of its spearhead. It is the most consistent one of the cellar. To put it simply, the wine is always good. Its color is vibrant, just like its nose: complex notes of black cherry, blackcurrant with a hint of pepper. Ample on the palate, with strong retro-olfaction. A strong Chambolle.

 "The 2020 Chambolle-Musigny Les Sentiers 1er Cru, courtesy of 70-year-old vines, is much more backward on the nose compared to the Noirots, but no less complex with lovely forest floor and wild mushroom scents interpolated amongst the dark fruit. There is something almost autumnal here. The palate is fresh and lightly spiced with a dash of white pepper, cohesive and structured with a very persistent finish. Excellent." - 94pts Vinous
