The 2018s have arrived from the Queen of Chambolle, Ghislaine Barthod. While the estate makes no Grand Cru wines, the wines are a study of Chambolle terroir, as they make no less than nine separate premier cru bottlings. Perhaps their lack of history (they only bought their current estate in 1986) and lack of Grand Crus holdings has kept this estate out of the obvious spotlight. That seems unlikely though given the tiny amount of her wines that are awarded to Texas. That being said, while Mugnier, Vogue, and Roumier are rightfully famous, the Ghislaine Barthod wines are the connoisseur's under-the-radar Chambolle of choice. The style is classic Chambolle-Musigny. As the adage goes, “If you know the woman, you know the wine”—and in Ghislaine’s case it holds perfectly true. She radiates a warmth, intelligence, and joyousness of spirit that comes through clearly in her Burgundies, which always combine exuberantly pure fruit with finely chiseled minerality, classical structure, and a breathtaking clarity of expression. This is pure, benchmark Chambolle-Musigny in all of its silky textured, seductively aromatic, and red fruited glory. Less than 3 bottles available of each of the premier crus. 

"If classically styled ultra pure and understated Chambolle floats your burgundy boat, then the Barthod wines should be on your very short list along with the likes of Roumier, Mugnier and de Vogüé as they really are that good." 
--Allen Meadows, Burghound
