The only exception to the ensemble of Nuits-Saint-Georges wines present here, this famous Gevrey-Chambertin parcel is often mistakenly presented as a premier cru, but this confusion is because it is of such high quality. In fact it is located just under Les Charmes.
The wine expresses itself fully this year with an intense colour, great length and ripe aromas, giving us a smooth wine, without sacrificing its ageing potential.
Vinification and aging:
The harvest is completely destemmed before being placed in the vat. Fermentation starts naturally thanks to indigenous yeasts.
In March, after 6 months of aging and following the auction, the acquired barrels leave the Hospices cellar and settle in the cellar of Château de Charmont, next to the Premiers and Grands Crus of Maison Edouard Delaunay.
The wine finishes its aging in its original barrel or is re-intoned if we deem it necessary for its good development.After 9 months of aging in our cellars, the wines are then ready to be bottled and reach the cellars of our customers.
The estate produces 140 barrels each year, divided into 18 vintages.
