2013 Domaine Arlaud Chambolle Musigny
by JJ Buckley Fine Wines
On Sale $49.94 (reg. $74.94)
It’s hard not to love great Chambolle. Remarkably perfumed, elegantly textured, it occupies its very own identity among the best communes of Burgundy. Finding a great village Chambolle at a palatable price however, is hard. Luckily Domaine Arlaud is precisely the kind of domaine that can attend to that need: delivering solid, terroir-expressive red Burgundy at friendly prices.
2013 was a cool classic vintage that is “ripe with rewards and is endlessly intriguing” (Tanzer) and has proven a supremely valuable vintage for those seeking classically styled Burgundy without all the hype. Combine 2013 with Domaine Arlaud and you get this Chambolle-Musigny at 30% our regular price, and far and away the lowest on the market!
At five years after the vintage, the 2013 Arlaud Chambolle-Musigny is “very Chambolle in character” (Burghound), showing aromas of red cranberry, earth, and a classic floral perfume. The palate is savory and mineral with that bright Chambolle energy and underlying tannin - this is a Chambolle for the dinner table! Current manager Cyprien Arlaud has overseen a transition at the domaine, transitioning to organic and then biodynamic viticulture from 2004 onward and reducing new oak. In the words of the Wine Advocate’s Neil Martin, “I just love where this domaine is going.”
Our stock of this delightful 2013 Chambolle is limited, and this is currently the lowest price of any vintage on the market for Arlaud’s Chambolle, which is an absolute must try for fans of this legendary commune. Cheers!
