Description

The Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru lies between the village of Morey-Saint-Denis to the south and Gevrey-Chambertin to the north. The plot lies east of the Grand Cru wine route, at the bottom of the hillside, where the slope is slight (3%). The plot ranges in altitude from 261 to 280 meters. The lieu-dit faces east-southeast. The soil changes from east to west. In the eastern part, the soil is 20 to 50 cm thick, and stony, with angular-to-blunt, fine-grained white Comblanchien limestone fragments. In the western part of the plot, the reddish-brown soil is of a similar thickness, with blunt crinoidal limestone fragments (calcaire à Entroques). Two types of substratum underlie the Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru. The compact Comblanchien limestone in the eastern part of the plot is in contact with crinoidal limestone (calcaire à Entroques) in the western part, indicating the presence of a fault underlying this Grand Cru.

Tasting Profile

Nose
With complex aromas of blackberry, cassis, and subtle notes of vanilla and spice, this vintage offers an enticing bouquet that hints at the wine's depth and complexity.
Palate
Flavours of black fruits, earthy undertones, and a mineral edge adds dimension and depth. The tannins are firm and well-structured, providing a solid backbone that promises to age gracefully for years.
