The dark colour with garnet highlights of our Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru "Les Charmes" 2018 reveals a nose with notes of black cherry, toast and clove. On the palate, it is velvety and fresh with aromas of blackcurrant, liquorice and mocha. Beautiful aromatic persistence.
Latour indicates that they have a relatively strong level of control over the small, often semi-retired landholders from whom they buy grapes in Chambolle, and their Chambolle-Musigny offers lovely florals, lightly cooked cherry with a mocha undertone, and clean, raw meat character all very typical for this appellation and culminating in a juicy, sappy finish.

The French Wine region of Burgundy (aka “Bourgogne”) may be small in size, but its influence is huge in the world of vino. The complexity of Burgundy can cast fear into the heart of even a seasoned wine pro, but fear not – the region need only be as complicated as you want it to be. Yes, it is home to some of the most expensive wines in the known universe, but there are also tasty and affordable wines.

Main grapes:

Pinot Noir originated in Burgundy and these vines cover 34% of the region, accounting for 29% of overall wine production. The red grape does extremely well in limestone and clay soil, which helps create their complexity. Pinot Noir wines from Burgundy range in colour from cherry to brick, are light in body, and typically have red fruit and spicy flavours. Gamay is a red grape also grown in Burgundy, but only makes up 10% of the vines.

Chardonnay is the primary grape for white wines in Burgundy, making up 48% of the vines and 68% of production. Chardonnay appreciates Burgundy’s marl soil, which gives it delicate floral, fruit, and mineral aromas and full-bodied flavours. Aligoté is the second white grape, accounting for 6% grown. {Read more about the ancient Aligoté grape in Burgundy.}

The region does produce a sparkling wine called Crémant de Bourgogne. It can be made from Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Aligoté, Gamay, Sacy, and Melon. Varieties include blanc, blanc de blancs, blanc de noirs, and rosé.
