Join Buyers Beth Pearce MW and Robbie Toothill for an online conversation about Bordeaux 2021 on May 26 - details here
Le Charmois is on a hill just next to Chassagne-Montrachet’s 1er Cru Les Chaumées. Its cool, poor limestone soil makes for a tightly powerful wine with straight, chalky freshness. It has a glinting green colour in the glass, and so much tension on the palate. This will need a little time to unwind, but when it does, will reveal the superb savoury freshness of St-Aubin’s top sites. There is so much in store here.
The 2020 Saint-Aubin Le Charmois 1er Cru has an impressive nose in terms of demonstrating more mineralité and tension than some of the domaine’s other cuvées. The cohesive palate is very well balanced with vibrant citrus fruit, orange pith and light spicy notes and good depth on the finish. Excellent.
