Domaine Jean-Paul & Stephane Magnien Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru 2008 750ml
Gevrey-Chambertin, Cote de Nuits, Burgundy, France
Bettane et Desseauve 16.5
Situated in the heart of the Cotes de Nuits between Gevrey-Chambertin and Chambolle-Musigny, this is a vineyard of 4.5 hectares in area which produces a complete range of fines wines. Their small family estate has for four generations respected traditional viticultural methods which allows them to offer high quality wines.
The vineyard enjoys an enviable terroir with a subsoil of limestone, dating from the Jurassic period, and the topsoil, a naturally-irrigated blend of clay and chalk. On average, the age of the vines is 45 years.
Far from following fashionable trends, their wines are elegant, fruity, and full of freshness while remaining true to the “terroir” they come from.
