What importer Rosenthal Wine Merchant has to say about this wine...
The domaine owns a mere tenth of a hectare of Pinot Noir planted in the early 1960s in this relatively large grand cru. This Charmes-Chambertin gives the impression of small-berried fruit, with a subtly mineral-inflected palate of taut tension and somewhat firm tannins; patience will be rewarded here. (50% new oak.)

Burgundy has long been the world's most famous wine region. But, underneath all the prestige, this region can be hard to get to know.
While Burgundy offers many great trophies from top producers in well-known villages like Vosne Romanee and Puligny Montrachet, it also offers excellent values to anyone willing to explore beyond the famous names. Our collection– one of the largest in the U.S. – has plenty of both!
