|Dominique Laurent Chambolle Musigny
||Dominique Laurent invented at the end of the 1980s the concept of haute-couture merchant, specialized in the breeding at the highest level of small quantities of vintages chosen for the exceptional quality of their plant material (old fine pinot vines). The very particular way of preserving the wines for a long time on the lees, without racking and with the minimum or not at all of sulfur, makes the wines very difficult to judge before their bottling and the aeration they then receive. But the wait is worth it, because the wines acquire a fullness of texture and aromatic complexity that set them apart, especially since the quality of the wood has been much refined, with less use of new wood. , but in barrels made by the house's own cooperage, from Tronçais oak, with a unique quality of drying and burning. The range of the house begins with the Tradition quality (...) which plays in a way the role of second wine of Bordeaux, and continues with the villages n ° 1 and the cuvées old vines, resulting from the best batches and the best barrels , bottled as in the past, in goats, one by one, which can sometimes explain certain microvariations from one bottle to another. The 2006 are certainly one of the greatest successes of the house, and will make bottles of anthology, especially in the great vintages of the Côte de Nuits.
