Chambolle-Musigny

1er Cru "Les Charmes"

 

 

This cuvée of Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru, comes from a plot of 0.22 hectares located in "Les Charmes". The soil is made up of a thin layer of clay mixed with small pebbles, placed on a limestone base, thus giving very complex wines, very fine but with great potential.

The exposure is full east, and the plot is slightly sloping. 

The average yield is 40 HL / ha, producing about 1.200 bottles per year. 

 

Tasting notes : 

 

Beautiful bright red garnet colour.

This nose is very discreet, nevertheless expressing notes of macerated grapes of very great maturity. Smells of blooming flowers (pink carnations) also brings a very classical touch to the bouquet.

The mouth is dense, racy and superb! The aromas are complex: there are notes of cherry jam but also flowers. The material is compact and tightly packed with high quality tannins, guaranteed by a well timed harvest. The master vinification with minimum of intervention, allows for this magnificent result: a great terroir, which produces a great wine, among the best of the appellation.

Cuvée solidly built, it deserves a certain amount of ageing to be tasted at its optimum.
