2016 Domaine A&H Chambolle-Musigny
This relatively small 7 hectare estate has been in existence for four generations. It is run by the amiable couple, Anne and Hervé Sigaut who are wonderful, low-key folks, true people of the earth who love what they do and clearly work hard to make the absolute best wines that they can, not for the outside praise, but rather because their inner ‘Burgundian compasses’ guide them to do so. Although they collaborate on all aspects of the production, she is a bit more in vineyards and commerce, and he more in the cellar. Because they don’t own any Grand Cru vineyards, they have largely remained “under-the-radar” in a village that certainly doesn’t lack for anointed stars. Like their understated personalities and attitudes, the Sigauts prefer to make wines on the fine and delicate side, wines that caress rather than clobber. They are helped by a bevy of old vines, many 50-60+ years old.
91 Points - Burghound.com. "A strikingly fresh nose combines notes of plum, dark currant, spice and a hint of violet. There is excellent density and punch to the caressing middle weight flavors that possess a dusty and persistent if borderline rustic finale. This offers very solid quality though not necessarily much refinement."
