Ghislaine Barthod

Ghislaine Barthod


Ghislaine Barthod makes an unlikely superhero. As charming as her wines, she exhibits little of the inner steel she had to have to take over her estate on inheritance, and improve it and the wines. And improve they have. Barthod wines continue to climb the league table, not only in Chambolle, but in Burgundy as a whole. Yet the tiny barrel cellar and less than fifteen acres of land cannot hope to supply the demand for the ten different wines produced, including a singular white. And incidentally Pinot Noir`s amazing tendency to mutate means that some white fruit is in Fuees and Beaux Bruns. Ghislaine`s yields have been steadily reduced over the years, partly by her secateurs at pruning and partly by the weather of the last couple of seasons. But she makes Burgundy not gravy and so the terroir of her various vineyards always shows through, even in the warmer years. (CW 19/02/09)
