Grown in light and sandy soil, Les Charmois is a softer and more supple Pinot
Noir than most Nuits-Saint-Georges. It also stands in stark contrast to the
harsher, clay-grown, Aloxe-Cortons from Domaine Durand. Ready to drink now!
The nose on this wine is a bit meaty, but subdued. It has some excellent structure and amazing fruit. This Pinot Noir would be a great addition to your wine cellar, and will continue to blossom.
Food pairing: Gamey meats
The nose on this pretty, red-violet Pinot Noir is subdued—making the wine seem like a rose whose petals have not yet opened. Offers spicy black cherry on the palate, with good structure and plenty of acidity. If you open this wine in the next year or two (2015–2016), be sure to decant it and/or pair it with rich food.
Food pairing: Porcetta
