This Savigny-lès-Beaune-based négociant owns a little over five acres in Chambolle-Musigny. The 1999 Les Baudes is big, with deep color and a solid structure—appropriate for a wine coming from vines situated just below Bonnes Mares. Ripe, perfumed fruits and well-integrated tannins suggest this will be ready to drink in the next two or three years.
