The producer

Ghislaine Barthod assumed responsibility of winemaking in 1987, taking full control of the estate in 1999, crafting a range of wines from nearly 6 hectares of Chambolle-Musigny and is one of the stars of the commune, despite having no Grand Cru vineyard. However, the holdings of precious parts of some of the best Premier Crus assures the fame of the estate, with up to 11 separate Premier Cru bottlings of which Les Cras is one stand out.

The wine

Ghislaine Barthod has 0.82 hectares in Les Cras 1er Cru, which is sited at the same altitude as Bonnes Mares. Elegance, concentration, and structure epitomise what makes the wines of Chambolle-Musigny so charming. Ghislaine Barthod – with her pure and graceful touch - is a standard-bearer for the commune.

We choose our wines based on a range of criteria (see how we choose our wines) of which critic scores is just one. Rather than simply highlight the best score to promote a wine, our average critic score is calculated from the scores provided by several respected wine critics, who we follow for specific regions. They do not represent all critic scores and, wherever possible, we try and give more weight to more recent reviews. Where appropriate we consider market-based scores like Global Wine Score or Wine Searcher Average scores.

As a rule, we look to offer wines that achieve a 92/100 average critic score or better and frankly a lot of very good wines simply don’t make the cut. As a high-end provider we want to reflect that positioning in the quality of wines we offer. Such wines are only a tiny fraction of those generally on offer in the market. We believe that an average score is a more conservative and representative approach, but it is still subjective and only offered as a guide to our customers, who will (and should) do their own research. We will add individual critic scores to our website in the future.
