FOOD PAIRINGS: This is a grand wine which deserves the best accompaniment: prime meat, morels, truffles, wild hare, aged cheeses. Charmes-Chambertin is a rare and generous wine for the greatest occasions.
TASTING NOTES: “The wine offers an intense and deep colour with powerful and complex aromas of red and black fruits and of licorice. Structured, with a long aftertaste it develops a lot of finesse and the tannins remains silky. Elegant. A great wine”. – Véronique Boss-Drouhin
