Created in 1863, this a family estate, run from the Château of Chambolle-Musigny in Burgundy
4 hectares (~10 acres) of vines entirely of our own property.
15000 botlles of red Chambolle-Musigny produced annually, consisting mostly of Premiers Crus and Grands Crus.
Jocelyne and Frédéric Mugnier work together as a team, in charge of the viticulture, the wine-making, the cellaring and much more …
A great wine is, above all, the creation of the soil and the climate; it is helped and cared for by the wine grower.
Our craft is therefore to respect the living equilibrium in the soil and in the grape. This basic concept guides us in our work.
With this in mind we try to harness the best of traditional ideas combined with technical progress.
We are not dogmatic in our methods ; we try to evaluate the effect of any action in the vineyard while monitoring any environmental side effects that may occur. We have therefore been able to eliminate weed-killers and industrial fertilisers – neither of these have been used for 10 years. We have also been able to considerably reduce sprays used in the vineyards.
A positive result of this policy is that we now have healthy biological activity in our soil.
We apply the same approach in our cellar ; processes that traumatise the wine – over extraction, for example, or excessive woodiness – are limited to a minimum..
In this way we hope to achieve our goal of producing wines that are each representative of their respective terroir and vintage, while at the same time having their individual character that is harmonious and sincere.
