Chambolle-Musigny embodies the delicacy of the Côte de Nuits' finest red wines. Anne and Hervé Sigaut, in charge of an early 19th century family wine estate, produce some of the most outstanding terroirs of the appellation. Their wines have been unanimously acclaimed for their brightness and purity.

Chambolle, with two "l" as in the French word dentelle (lace). A name which makes any wine lover's ears sing. Few appellations are blessed with such a fascinating identity. And even fewer are cultivated by winemakers as dedicated and talented as Anne and Hervé Sigaut. Fineness, elegance and femininity... The Pinot Noir varietal is at its most refined here : blackberry and violet aromas and a feeling of smooth satin on the palate. The 150+ hectares Domaine Anne and Hervé Sigaut is located in the land of Burgundy's finest red wines, on a narrow strip of vineyards extending from north to south.

Anne et Hervé Sigaut move in sync with their times, without giving in to the sirens' call of so-called modernity that would keep them away from daily interaction with their land, their vineyards and their grapes. You will not find any frivolous equipment in their cellar. To them, the human hand remains the best tool to achieve meticulous, delicate and traditional work.

In the 1950s, Maurice Sigaut bottled his first wines: a Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Sentiers. In the 1970s, his son, Hervé, took over. In more recent years, his wife Anne brought higher standards and extra daily determination. She signed her first vintage in 2004.

The various owners of this estate have always been aware of its unique value: the diversity of its terroirs. Proximity with the land meets with a passion for great wines. The family has shared many important moments around a fine bottle of wine, patiently awaited from the cellar.

These bottles are the results of all year-round meticulous labor in the vineyards. The control of yield knows no bounds. "I cannot stop working until I'm entirely satisfied", Anne Sigaut sums up. Every summer, green harvests, which consists in removing immature grape bunches and thinning the crops, are carried out on each plot of vineyard. A painstaking task only assigned to the female staff. The different generations in charge of the winery never resorted to full weed control. Anne and Hervé Sigaut have stopped using weed killer for a decade.

They don't know any magic formula or revolutionary method. Their creed is simple: constant attention for a mature, well balanced and healthy grape.

Every year, a faithful team of 30 grape pickers harvests the vineyards. First they use a picking bucket, then a box of a small height that some of them carry. This method prevents the grapes from being pressed together. Then, grapes bunches are directly poured onto a vibrating sorting table.

In order to virify healthy and intact berries, Anne and Hervé Sigaut are advocates for soft de-stemming followed by gravity vatting. This is the best way to preserve the grapes' aromatic potential. "Pinot Noir is a tricky variety which requires the least amount of interference as possible" the winemakers explain. The use of new barrels is parsimonious - around 25% over a long period of time, which allows the various cuvées to slowly reveal the character of each of the Climats.

Finally, the wine is the one who decides when it is ready to be bottled. That is when its aromatic expression has reached its fullest and when its balance is the most harmonious. Then it needs to be kept for at least 5 years in order to reach its fullness.

Many wine aficionados around the world have made the tasty discovery of Anne and Hervé Sigaut's wines. Be it in a great gastronomic restaurant or during a special homemade dinner...

A refined vintage born in serenity.
"It feels good, especially after the 2018 harvest that required constant attention", recalls Anne Sigaut. The extraordinarily healthy grapes matured effortlessly in the nonstop sun brought by an early summer heatwave. It barely rained in August and not a single drop of rain fell in September. The only concern that year was preventing the berries from drying out because of the multiple heatwaves before harvesting. "We decided to go in the vineyards three weeks before the harvest to cut off the grapes that had been fried by the sun. I am very grateful for my female staff!" adds Anne Sigaut. The harvest began on September 12th, earlier than usual, yet slightly later than in 2018. These additional days made the fruits more balanced, with no excess sugar (around 13.5° potential). Always aiming to protect the fruits' freshness, the Domaine chose to only harvest in the morning, even if it meant asking the grape pickers to be ready to start work at 7am. Their efforts were not in vain: yields were satisfying, except in the plots in the village of Chambolle and Les Fuées 1er cru which suffered from dry weather conditions. Most importantly, the vines offer great harmony, with silky tannins and beautiful aromatic elegance. The 2019 vintage superbly highlights the floral notes characteristic of Chambolle-Musigny wines.
