Here the nose is extremely pretty with expressive aromas of red berry fruit, underbrush and warm Gevrey-style earth nuances that can also be found on the admirably pure and relatively fine flavors that display a hint of tanginess on the otherwise extremely long finish.Drink: 2020+
Charmes-Chambertin is one of the nine Grand Crus vineyards within the Gevrey Chambertin area. On gentle slopes, sheltered from the elements by woods to the north, gravelly soil forces the vines to work hard. Relatively large for a Grand Cru appellation, it is hard to generalise about the wines. Often intensely perfumed and seductive, Charmes-Chambertin can be approachable earlier than its Grand Crus neighbours.
