Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru "Aux Charmes"

A very elegant wine with a freshness that reflects the terroir.


The wine
Always very elegant and sometimes too round and charming I try to show in this wine some more freshness brings by the whole clusters who bring the sappiness of this terroir. I like to explain that I try to stretch the wine with the mineraux of the stem and to give a big length.

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.
