Dark cherries, plum, blueberry, and quince capture this quintessential 'Charmes' bouquet. Exotic spices complement this medium-bodied wine. Quite elegant now but can be kept in bottle for several years to come. FOOD PAIRING: Pork Roast with Sausage, Fruit and Nut Stuffing.

Wine AdvocateMoving on to the trio of Claude Dugat's Grand Crus, the 2011 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru has a quintessential "Charmes" bouquet with vivacious scents of dark cherry, blueberry and quince, suffused with an almost sorbet-like freshness. The palate is medium-bodied with a slightly sinewy entry. It coalesces in the second half and displays very fine, supple tannins with plenty of juicy Pinot fruit just cloaked under the 100% new oak at the moment, although everything is balanced and in sync. I would afford this three or four years in bottle for it to fully integrate. Drink 2016-2025.
