Chambolle-Musigny is a red wine, often regarded as the most « feminine » wine of the Côte de Nuits ; its intensity and delicacy express themselves with elegance and subtlety. To the eye, it presents a bright ruby hue with luminous highlights. Its bouquet, easily recognisable, is composed of violet and small red fruits (raspberry, strawberry). With further aging it tends towards spiced ripe fruits and prune, or towards truffle, underbrush and animal notes. Rich, fragrant and complex, it lines the palate with silk and lace.

With a personality that allies power and feminity, it demands high-flavoured and sophisticated dishes like feathered game, well-roasted lamb or a free range capon. Roast veal's subtle texture would be delicately enveloped by the dense but silky tannins of the Chambolle. Cheeses - preferably mild : Brillat-Savarin, Reblochon, Cîteaux, Vacherin, Brie de Meaux or Chaource

Serving temperature : 14°C for young wines, 14 to 16°C, for older wines.
