The terroir of Chambolle-Musigny is one of the first to gain AOC status, back in 1936. The soil is clay marl with many limestone patches, and produces very delicate wines. Chambolle-Musigny is thus often said to be the most “feminine” wine of the Côte de Nuits. The name Chambolle comes from the Gaulish word cambo, meaning “rich soil near a watercourse” and referring to the geographical situation of the village. Musigny, the name of the famous Grand Cru climat, is added in 1878.
