DOMAINE FRANCOIS BERTHEAUThis family winegrowing was taken again by François Bertheau in 2004. It represents the fifth generation to exploit this vineyard of 6.22 ha. The vines are 45 years old on average. the maturing is done out of barrels (including 20 to new wood 30%) for one 18 months duration, the wine, not filtered, will be marketed approximately 6 months after its setting in bottles.
We are at the head of its appellation with this superb Chambolle-Musigny premier cru Les Charmes 2016, with aromas of ripe fruit (blackcurrant, strawberry), powerful and distinguished mouth, a wine full-bodied, colorful and complex as we like them, of excellent evolution. The 2015, has a beautiful color with violet reflections, combining structure and distinction, very by-smoke, with these notes of humus and fruits on- ripe. Remarkable Chambolle-Musigny premier cru 2015, very typical, with ripe tannins, very balanced, combining structure and flexibility, with complex aromas of plum, undergrowth and liquorice, very good guard.
The 2014, with a brilliant colour, is a subtle wine, with a melted mouth, notes of overripe cherry and pepper, where the finesse is combined with a tasty velvety, to be presented with a terrine of pheasant with foie gras or a veal roast. The 2013, exudes a nose of overripe cherry, pretty material, silky and ample, a very fragrant wine (cinnamon, leather and violet). His Chambolle-Musigny premier cru Les Amoureuses 2015, with tasty and rich tannins at the same time, is generous, colorful, with this fleshy and charming finish, dominated by stone fruits and cinnamon. Excellent Chambolle-Musigny Village 2016, of sustained color, with ripe tannins, aromas of raspberry and spices.
Remarkable Chambolle-Musigny premier cru 2017, particularly charming, with very balanced tannins, combining structure and roundness on the palate, a type wine, ample, powerful mouth, with a captivating nose with these notes of violet and prune.

Chambolle-Musigny is concentrated on the smoothness, accompanied by some red fruit notes which one can make age 2 to 3 years. It is a wine which one can let age but it is much fonder of delicacies in his youth
