Grape Variety : Pinot Noir
Soil : Clay and limestsone
Site : This climat "Charmes" is located on a mid slope facing east in the Southern part of the village of Gevrey Chambertin. One of its nearest neighbour is the famous of "Chambertin".
The Vintage 2009 : After a cold winter and a beautiful spring, the hot summer was interrupted by stormy intervals which fortuitously took place when needed and thus facilitated growth and good maturation of the grapes. Harvest began early September with excellent weather conditions. Aged in oak during 18 months.
Tasting : Deep ruby colour with purple nuances. Intense aromas of red berries and truffles mixed with spices and vanilla. Well-structured, dense and deep. Tight texture with racy tannins. Well-integrated oak. Long aftertaste.
Food pairing : It is perfectly matched with red meat grilled or en sauce and all cheeses, especially the local cheeses like Epoisses or Citeaux.
