97Jeb Dunnuck

...meaty, black-fruited, rich, powerful wine...offers loads of mulled plums, black cherries, smoked earth, licorice, and forest floor aromas and flavors. Rich, full-bodied, and expansive, this beauty packs serious richness and depth and has ripe tannins as well as a great finish.

93The Wine Advocate

Aromas of cherries and cassis mingling with violets, dark chocolate and blackberries...medium to full-bodied, fleshy and sumptuous wine that's generous and expressive, with succulent acids, fine tannins and an ample core of fruit.

...spiced liqueur-like aromas of plum and cassis along with a hint of warm earth. The mouthfeel of the larger-scaled flavors is rich and opulent to the point of being almost oily and unctuous, all wrapped in a palate saturating if slightly warm finish.


France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Nuits-Villages, Gevrey-Chambertin, Charmes-Chambertin

Charmes-Chambertin is a 78-acre Grand Cru vineyard in Gevrey-Chambertin that traditionally includes the acreage of nearby Mazoyeres-Chambertin. For nearly 200 years the growers of Mazoyeres have been legally allowed to sell their wines under the more famous name of Charmes-Chambertin, and virtually all of them do. Charmes-Chambertin is the largest of the Gevrey-Chambertin Grand Crus, and it generally has an excellent reputation. The slope of the vineyard is gentle and the surface soil poor. But producers including Joseph Roty, Christian Serafin, Domaine Dujac, Faiveley and Joseph Drouhin are acclaimed for their Charmes Chambertin. Principal landholders are Camus, with 14.75 acres; Perrot-Minot, 4 acres; and Armand Rousseau, 3.5 acres.


Red Wine, Pinot Noir, Grand Cru

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
