New Jean Claude Boisset 1er Cru wines
We are pleased to annouce the arrival of two new premier cru wines from Jean Claude Boisset:
Pommard 1er Cru Chaponnieres
Between Beaune and Volnay are the vast vineyards of Pommard, extending out on either side of a monumental coomb. This gives rise to two types of wine: from vines which ‘plunge’ downwards towards Beaune to the north, and from those growing on the hillsides to the south, on the Volnay side… and it is precisely here, at mid-slope, that we find Les Chaponnières, whose terroir consists of clay and limestone pebbles, with iron oxides which add a red hue to the ground and structure to the wines.
Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Charmes
This appellation is one of the smallest and most fragmented in the Côte: it covers a mere 97ha, of which is planted as Village, 50ha as Premier Cru and 25ha as Grand Cru. The village has fairly homogenous terroirs with an easterly exposure. More than anything, the delicate, silky nature of Chambolle-Musigny derives from the character of its soil.
