Chambolle’s Bonnes Mares & Musigny: Two grands crus compared

The village of Chambolle contains two of Burgundy's most renowned sites, Bonnes Mares and Musigny. Charles Curtis MW relates the tale of two crus.

The village of Chambolle starts with a grand cru in the north and finishes with another in the south. They are both highly regarded, yet very different.

The wines of Bonnes Mares are often seen as more massive, more structured, and more muscular, while those from Musigny are more elegant, more expressive, and more nuanced.
