The vineyards:
Situated at the heart of Côte de Nuits, between Morey-Saint-Denis and Vougeot, the name of the village Chambolle is probably derived from the Celtic 'cambola', already reputed for its vineyards in Gallo-Roman times and cultivated by the monks in the Middle Ages. Joseph Drouhin owns several parcels in this appellation. The soil, the limestone of the subsoil is of Jurassic age origin, ideally suited for Pinot Noir.

Viticulture:
Biological cultivation since 1990; biodynamic cultivation a few years later. Vine stocks: "sélection massale" (propagation of new vine stocks from a number of selected vines) done at the Drouhin nursery; also clones of recognized quality.
Soil maintenance: compost of manure and white wood, sometimes guano (seabird manure used as fertilizer). Soil is ploughed either by tractor or by horse to manage spreading of weeds.
Treatment: only authorized products for biological cultivation are used: infusions and macerations of plant materials, sulfur and copper, powdered rock. Natural predators are not eliminated.
Plantation density: from 10,000 to 12,500 stocks/ha in order to extract all possible nuances from the terroir and limit the production of each vine stock.
Pruning: Guyot.
Yield: They aim to keep their yields low, more in line with the previous regulation: around 20% less than allowed by the current law.

Tasting notes:
'Fine lace and silk are the words most often associated with this wine. Bright, intense colour and complex aromas evoking violet, black cherry and damp earth. According to the vintages, there are also notes of truffle and game. Refined tannins coat the palate. Good balance between texture and acidity. Long aftertaste, with notes of cherry and candied fruit.' – Véronique Boss-Drouhin
