Couvent Chambolle-Musigny “40 Ouvrées” 2019

$82

Philippe Cheron is the winemaker at the newly created Domaine du Couvent. The new domaine combines the holdings of the shuttered Domaine des Varoilles and Cheron’s family vineyards, including several plots his grandfather planted in the 1930s. Burghound calls Couvent “a domaine to watch,” and Martin writes “It is definitely a grower that I will keep an eye on.” We agree, and we’re thrilled to have them on board.

Couvent’s 2019 Chambolle Musigny “Les 40 Ouvrées” is blend of a dozen tiny plots from across the appellation. It’s open and accessible, showing deep strawberry fruit and the silky texture for which the town is known. Neal Martin of Vinous awarded 90-92 points, finding it “delicate but precise,” “smooth and succulent, very lush in style, but maintains good balance and freshness,” concluding “very sensual.” Jancis Robinson found it “luxurious” and “delicious.”
