Jean Claude Boisset Chambolle Musigny 1er Cru Les Charmes 2019
The colour is garnet red. The nose is very expressive and charming with intense aromas of small black fruits and peppery notes. On the palate, this wine is a bit austere in its youth but has a more square substance and a spicy finish. Good ageing potential!
This appellation is one of the smallest and most parcelled out of the Côte with only 97 ha of Village appellation vines, 50 ha of Premiers Crus and 25 ha of Grands Crus. The terroirs of Chambolle-Musigny are rather homogenous and enjoy eastern exposure. The delicate silkiness of its wines stems directly from the soil type.
This term 'Charmes' is used in Burgundy to designate poor vegetation plateaux, uncultivated or fallow land.Formerly there were many plots not worked by their owner because they were very stony and difficult to cultivate.
