This vineyard is located on the border of the 1er Crus Argilats and Bousselots in the northern part of the appellation. A 0.40 ha plot planted in 1962, its style reflects the finesse of Vosne-Romanée with the structure of Nuits-Saint-Georges. The two levels of soils -- a topsoil of clay and a deeper limestone composite -- give two layers to the wine, which is often elegant in the beginning leading to tension and freshness at the finish.

The grapes are harvested by hand with ~40% whole cluster fermentation. As with all of our wines, minimal intervention occurs during the delicate 3-week fermentation process. Aging is then done for 18 months in 40% new French oak barrels. This is a very brambly red berry wine with subtle earth and fine tannic structure.

Press Notes :

89-91 Points, Neal Martin, Vinous Media: “The 2019 Nuits Saint-Georges La Charmotte includes 45% whole bunch this year. It has a well-defined bouquet that displays wonderful Pinoté. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red fruit, fine grip and hints of marmalade toward the finish, which feels a little stern at the moment but should soften once in bottle.”
