"It comes from the upper part of Charmes-Chambertin, it combines smoothness, depth, intensity and delicacy. Again this year a must in charms, what a dazzling nose! 19/20 points."
Vinous Reverie Notes
From 0.30 hectare plot planted in 1946. This parcel is situated in the top place of the Charmes Chambertin Terroir call “Aux Charmes” it’s exactly in front of the border between Latricieres Chambertin and Chambertin. Up-slope, the rocks are of bathonien origin, lower down the marls and limestones belong to the Jurassic (Bajocian) and numerous marine fossils are to be found on the surface, recalling the sea which covered this area some 150 million years ago. Harvesting is manual with 60% whole clusters. 50% of new oak barrels are used for an aging period of 20 months. Tasting Notes: Always shows a beautiful elegance and a great purity. This wine is characterized by its roundness and complexity with a longer finish and a little different kind of freshness compared to the beginning of the mouth.
