Belonging to the Cistercian abbey of Gilly until 1500, the village of Chambolle gradually became independent and took on the name of Chambolle-Musigny in 1882. The soil and sub-soils are of ideal composition for the production of wines with remarkable finesse and elegance and they were nicknamed the “Volnay of the Cote de Nuits”. The soil is generally quite shallow often just covering the rock. The vine reaches as far as 10 metres down through faults in the rock, notably in Musigny.
