About the wine

Tasting notes

The 2010 Charmes-Chambertin is sublime. It reveals lovely fleshiness and depth. Sweet red berries, flowers and spices flesh out in the glass. The Charmes impresses for its impeccable textural finesse, fabulous balance and overall sense of harmony. The Le Moine Charmes is equal parts true Charmes and Mayozeres. Anticipated maturity: 2020-2030.

Expert review

There is a floral nose to the red berry and cassis suffused nose that also evidences hints of earth, humus and forest floor. There is an unusual degree of refinement to the round yet precise middle weight flavors that possess a wonderfully complex, balanced and focused backend. This is really quite pretty but unlike many wines that are pretty but have limited depth, this is by contrast quite deep. 94pts
