"A brooding and slightly riper nose reluctantly offers up notes of various red and dark berries, earth and wood toast. The medium weight flavors are at once denser but finer with very good vibrancy that carries over to the slightly more austere and more structured finale that displays impressive persistence for a villages level wine. This too is very good and also worth checking out." -Allen Meadows

"The 2019 Chambolle-Musigny Les Bussières 1er Cru comes from 0.50-hectares of 50-year-old vines and includes 30% whole bunches and is aged in 20% new oak. It has a well defined bouquet with brambly red fruit, sage and light sous-bois aromas. The palate is classic in style, fresh with chalky tannins, zippy acidity and a surprisingly strict finish that might be just going through a prenatal dumb phase. Afford it 3-5 years in bottle at least, because the long saline finish augurs a bright future." -Vinous

"The 2019 Chambolle-Musigny Les Bussières offers up aromas of sweet berry fruit, red plums, cinnamon and forest floor. Medium-bodied, velvety and precise, it's lively and mouthwatering, its concentrated core of fruit underpinned by fine-boned structure. The 2019s, according to Laurent Lignier, possess "all the characteristics of great Pinot Noir," and that's an analysis with which I would concur. He has once again produced a fine vintage for both his domaine holdings and négociant sources—the latter, amounting to some 3.5 hectares of vines, now clearly distinguished in our reviews. As readers will know, winemaking is pretty classical at this address, with a short cold maceration, two to three weeks' maceration with one pigéage and one rémontage per day and maturation in barrels, some third of which are new—if possible, without racking—for fully 22 months in the domaine's cold cellars. Lignier began picking on September 16, and alcohol levels range between 13.5% and 14.7%, the latter extreme representing the exception rather than the rule. Tasting through the wines, the vast majority of which were in barrel and had not been racked, the most obvious analogy was with the domaine's 2015s at the same stage—but I look forward to revisiting them from bottle to confirm that impression." -Robert Parker

"This half-hectare of vines is underneath the Premier Cru Les Sentiers on the border with Morey-St-Denis. The average vine age is 50 years, although many vines are much older, with 30% of the fruit fermented as whole clusters and ageing taking place in 20% new wood. The result has remarkable purity of fruit and a typical Chambolle perfume, with a violet-scented raspberry and cassis fruit profile, lively freshness, and impressive depth of flavour."

What importer Rosenthal Wine Merchant has to say about this wine...

“Les Bussieres” sits just below the premier cru “Les Sentiers” (and just down-slope from grand cru Bonnes-Mares), hard on the border of Morey-Saint-Denis. The Ligniers exploit just under a half-hectare of vines here—a total of four parcels, planted between 1948 and 1988. This wine combines classic Chambolle elegance and mineral precision with the savory guts of Morey, with loads of spice and floral accents to the nose and a focused, linear palate that should soften and expand with a few years of cellaring.

Focus On: Burgundy

Burgundy has long been the world's most famous wine region. But, underneath all the prestige, this region can be hard to get to know.

While Burgundy offers many great trophies from top producers in well-known villages like Vosne Romanee and Puligny Montrachet, it also offers excellent values to anyone willing to explore beyond the famous names. Our collection– one of the largest in the U.S. – has plenty of both!

From the very basics of Burgundy's regions and wines to the specific terroirs of individual single vineyards--
everything you need to know about Bourgogne is just a click away!
