Domaine Jerome Castagnier Charmes Chambertin Grand Cru 2012 (2709)

France - Burgundy - Cote de Nuits - Gevrey-Chambertin
Pinot Noir

Gevrey-Chambertin is one of Burgundy's oldest vineyard sites with records detailing exceptional wines as far back at the 6th century. 


It boasts more Grand Crus than any other village in Burgundy with a total of nine. These vineyards lie mid slope between about 260 and 300 metres above sea level. 


The style of wine in Gevrey-Chambertin is more masculine than, say, Chabolle-Musigny or Vosne-Romanee. They are strong wines, full of earth and mineral notes, with the ability to age. 


Of the Grand Crus Charmes-Chambertin is the most elegant. It combines the power of Gevrey with the seductive style of vineyards further south. The red soil, rich in chalky limestone, ensures both freshness and line. Domaine Castagnier is yet another of those producers who enjoy some exceptional vineyard holdings and with a generational change we now see some high quality winemaking taking advantage of these sites. 


The 2012 Charmes-Chambertin comes from a tiny 0.4 hectare parcel of 65 year old vines.

Professional Reviews


Dark ruby. Nose with aromas of red fruits (raspberry, cherry, redcurrant) and blackcurrant, with floral notes (violet) and spicy. The palate is powerful, complex and silky. A wine of great finesse and an impressive aftertaste !! Very high regard.
