Rene Bouvier Chambolle-Musigny 1 er Cru ‘Les Fuees’ 2009

Vol- 75cl

Chambolle-Musigny Premier Cru Les Fuées has all the depth of its famous neighbour, but a finer texture. On the palate, you will find firm tannins that bring long-lasting, vibrant viscosity, accompanying the very complex aromatic expression: cherry, raspberry, peony, violet, rose, black pepper, cardamom, and marine notes. The lengthy persistence of the finish ends on a delicate note.

This Premier Cru is located to the left of the Grand Cru Bonnes-Mares; the Bouvier plot (0,30 ha) is at the top of the hill. Grapes are carefully sorted on two sorting tables, and then transferred by gravity into thermo-regulated tanks. Depending on the vintage, there will be
around 50% of whole bunches. Fermentation uses native yeasts. There is little mechanical intervention during vatting, where natural infusion is preferred. Only the first pressed juices are kept during pressing. Wines are aged for 18 months in barrels . The amount of sulphur added is kept to a minimum. The wine is bottled in relation to the lunar calendar

This wine has great ageing potential, from 10 to 20 years

Bernard Bouvier has 17 hectares under vine in and around Gevrey, Fixin and Marsannay – where he is president of the local syndicate. He has now moved to, and recently extended, state-of-the-art cellars just north of Gevrey and the quality of his wines is now absolute top division.

Vines average 50 years old. Yields are extremely low and the domaine is run on organic principles. Everything is hand picked and Bernard is increasingly employing a higher percentage of whole bunches. Fermentation of the reds involves a long, cold maceration and a gentle extraction – what Bernard calls an infusion.

About one third new barrels are used. They are bottled without fining or filtration and are fine, pure, concentrated and subtle. The Marsannay “En Ouzeloy”, Fixin “Crays de Chêne” and Gevrey “La Justice” benefit from small, fine stones, washed down from the Combe de Lavaux – which give wines of great finesse and elegance. The Marsannay Blanc “Le Clos”, from lighter soils, is also a delicious revelation.
