This terroir has one of the stronger personalities of the Chambolle-Musigny Premier Crus. Its bouquet is less floral than the other parts of the village; instead it has a more mineral nuance, more "earthy" than the Chambolle "Village" appellation or Les Amoureuses. The aromatic base note is that of blackberries and blueberries. In the mouth it is well structured, full and rich, the "attack" is very straightforward. To allow this wine to attain its full promise, it should be cellared for at least five years. In vintages of exceptional ageing potential, it can be kept for twenty to thirty years.

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Fuées has long been the "dark horse" of the domaine and Frédéric and I concurred that this is an underrated premier cru, that here probably lies in the shadow of Les Amoureuses. It has a very harmonious, understated bouquet with slightly earthy red berry fruit that begin to open in the glass, revealing blackberry and briary scents that are gentle and detailed. The palate is medium-bodied with a pinch of spice on the entry. It feels cohesive in the mouth and comes across reassuringly "classic" in style, blackberry and pomegranate towards the long and poised finish.
