2006 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru, Humbert Frères

Taken from the Mazoyères section that qualifies as Charmes- Chambertin. Finely knit and gently layered, this is true to form for charmes, with a lively nature and very fine tannic grip. The fruit character conjures up notes of blackberry, cherry and forest fruit allied to earthy minerality.There is an attractive supple nature here, and discreet perfume. Very fine and long.

2006 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru, Humbert Frères
Domaine Humbert Frères

Ten years ago, the Humbert brothers swapped roles with Manou moving into the winery and Frédéric into the vineyard, and they haven’t looked back since. A larger than life, rugby-playing winemaker, Manou draws out clear definition in his wines. There is noticeable clarity between the brothers’ many terroirs in Fixin and Gevrey-Chambertin, impressive precision indeed.
