About Chambolle Musigny

Situated between Beaune and Dijon, surrounded by green vineyards, lies Chambolle-Musigny. The ideal destination for wine connoisseurs, it is a small village that started life in 1100 as a vineyard run by monks from Citeaux, famous for its delicate, fruity bright ruby wine - so famous that it added "Musigny" as a suffix to its original name, after their best known vineyard. Standing at the heart of the Bourgogne winegrowing region - a 150km long stretch of vineyards that is wonderful to cycle through, or boat along the Canal du Nivernais - Chambolle-Musigny is a good base for exploring the wider area, including the historic town of Nuits-Saint-George and Dijon, the department's capital. A rolling green landscape peppered with ancient abbeys, Romanesque churches and quaint rural markets, it boasts a unique climate - and one perfectly suited to viticulture (due to the convergence of Mediterranean, Continental and Oceanic climates, and its chalky soil). Book one of the best places to stay in Chambolle Musigny and you'll be in a prime location for exploring the Cote d'Or wine region.
