Average critic rating : 89.5 points



The 2005 Chambolle-Musigny Les Beaux Bruns offers a sweet, sappy, vividly fruity personality in keeping with the character of its siblings. Black raspberry jelly allied to notes of caramel and chocolate inform a rich, silky palate featuring fine but persistent tannins. This should drink well early, though I find it lacking in the refinement or distinction that characterizes most of Barthod’s wines. Possibly this is being held back by its touch of reduction, although generosity of fruit is not really the issue – the wine is actually quite come-hither. ||Sharing expanded wine-making facilities with her husband, Louis Boillot, Gislaine Barthod continues to render some of the purest, most expressively fruity and consistently excellent as well as ageworthy Pinots in Burgundy. All but the Bourgogne and village Chambolle – recently assembled in tank – were tasted from barrel. Wine Advocate.April, 2007

Dating back to 1920’s, Domaine Ghislaine Barthod is a collaboration between wine stalwarts Noellat and Barthod, and still in the family with additional vineyard help from family member Louis Boillot, though this separate premise is run very much as its own business. Chambolle is the appellation where the domain excels, with five 1er cru sites they hold just under 6 hectares of vines of about on average 30 years age. Partial destemming, natural yeast and about 20 months ageing reflect the respect for traditional methods. The last decade as Ghislane (junior) has taken over winemaking has seen a rise in already strong quality and greater recognition for this domain.
