2018 Domaine Hervé and Anne Sigaut Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru "Les Gruenchers", Burgundy, France

$129.99

It is the most consistent one of the cellar. To put it simply, the wine is always good. Its color is vibrant, just like its nose: complex notes of black cherry, blackcurrant with a hint of pepper. Ample on the palate, with bright acidity and a lovely finish.

There are 6 units left in stock.

ABOUT THIS PRODUCER

The Siguat’s are unassuming but genuinely committed vignerons. Hervé Sigaut and wife Anne took over from Maurice Sigaut in 1990, and made important improvements both in the vineyard work and in the cellar.

Anne is totally committed to her work and has a huge passion for their 7 hectares of vineyards; Hervé is refreshingly logical in his approach to vineyard work: he pays attention to the lunar calendar for the key interventions while horses are used to plough in certain vineyards.

The winery was revamped in 2004 with a sorting table and his stainless steel tanks are sunk in the floor of the winery which helps evacuate harmful carbon dioxide during fermentation. They touch the wines as little as possible in the cellar and racks only once. New wood does not exceed 40% of the total and the oldest barrels are 5 years old from several coopers. The aim is to drop the rotation to a 3 year cycle.

These wines are examples of the magnificent terroirs of Chambolle and Morey.
