The vineyard is at the northern end of the commune, just north of Chambolle-Musigny village itself. It covers a three-hectare (seven-acre) plot of land at the very base of the Côte d'Or escarpment.
The 2020 Chambolle Musigny les Noirots 1er Cru, from 0.5 hectares of 40 year old vines tannins, feels slightly more stemmy on the nose, yet it is well defined, and the pepperiness compliments the darker fruit compared to the les Chatelots. The palate is framed by fine tannins, this Chambolle is well-structured with a Morey-like, mineral-driven finish that fans out wonderfully. Excellent.—Neal Martin, Vinous Media
Extremely intense rich purple. A charcoal rich, almost black fruit. A huge wealth of fruit on the palate, very succulent at first then showing a firmer structure, typical of this vineyard. A few red fruit notes join the blacker cherries. Fine length. Tasted: December 2021.—Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy
Tasting note: Enough wood to comment on frames the liqueur-like aromas of various dark berries, spice and a whiff of earth that aren't quite as fresh as the best in the range. The succulent, even opulent, medium weight flavors coat the palate while the slightly warm finish is both powerful and serious. This is also sufficiently structured as to require at least moderate patience.—Allen Meadows, Burghound
