    Situated in the heart of the appellation, Charmes is considered a very classical Chambolle premier cru. Dark and intense with hints of mocha, it has an open volume nicely integrated with its delicate purity. Not a powerful wine, but graceful and charming.

    The 2017 Chambolle-Musigny Les Charmes 1er Cru, matured in around 25% new oak, has a perfumed, floral bouquet, peony and incense infusing the black cherry and boysenberry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with a fresh, slightly confit-like opening, moderate depth and a fresh line of acidity. Then a dash of spice toward the finish lends welcome tension and persistence. Fine. 2020 - 2035

    A pungent nose is comprised by notes of wood and reduction. The medium weight flavors are also attractively rich and generously proportioned with a sleek and supple mouthfeel that is enhanced by the equally fine grain of the supporting tannins on the dusty and saline finish. This is lovely and very Charmes in personality. Drink 2029+

    The 2017 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Charmes is a real success, wafting from the glass with notes of raspberries, cherries, rose petals, dark spices and grilled squab. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, layered and concentrated, with satiny tannins, a succulent core of fruit and an elegant sense of effortlessness that exemplifies the vintage at its best, concluding with a long finish.

    Decanter, November 2018

    Les Charmes largely escaped the frost in 2016 so there was no need to reduce the crop in 2017. This comes from two parcels of 40 and 70-year-old vines which make up a total of 0.25ha. There’s a hint of good reduction on the nose which leads you into a palate that's crunchy, chalky and refreshing, unfurling flavours of raspberry and pomegranate supported by polished tannins. Drink 2022-2028

Domaine Alain Hudelot-Noëllat

The Hudelots are an ancient Burgundian family whose ancestry can be traced back to Chambolle since before the French Revolution. Needless to say, wine has been in their blood for almost as long. Alain Huedlot began his wine career in 1954 working for his father and other local growers. At the ripe young age of 20, he started renting vineyards from his family in Chambolle Musigny until eventually receiving other small parcels from his father. Following a passionate and whirlwind romance with the granddaughter of Charles Noellat, he married despite protests from her family. This controversial union ensured additional vineyards despite a harrying and lengthy legal battle. Today the domaine owns a total of 10 well-situated hectares, which are split over 5 communes. Alain Hudelot’s grandson Charles Van Canneyt is a man on a mission. Having arrived at the domaine from Champagne only six years ago, he is already considered one of the brightest young talents in the region. These wines are wonderful examples of traditionally styled Burgundy - superbly pure and focused with an undeniable sense of terroir.

Region

Chambolle-Musigny

The wines of Chambolle Musigny are like no other. They can be superbly delicate, yet mindblowingly complex. Of all the northern Burgundy appellations, they are the most ethereal, and as a result the most feminine. Most of the Chambolle Musigny vineyard area is encompassed in its Village and Premier Cru appellations including the robust Beaux Bruns, the splendidly mineral Le Cras and the poised yet powerful Les Amoureuses. It produces only two Grand Crus - the round and rich Bonnes Mares which it shares with Morey St. Dénis, as well as what could be described as the Stradivarius of grand crus, Musigny.
