1er Cru Charmois

In Burgundy, this word refers to the old common fields cultivated and lain fallow again, or planted of hornbeams.

Until the last day, the 2021 wine year is trying. Marked by severe episodes of frost between April 5 and 9 which significantly reduced the harvest, the vines awakening was difficult, and the months of April and May were rainy and cool. Until the harvest, which began on September 20, the brutal weather changes set their tempo: responsiveness and constant attention are necessary. Fortunately, the lull in June allowed the flowering to take place without incident and veraison was favored by good conditions which set in from mid-August.


Located on the side of Chassagne-Montrachet, this vineyard grows on white and very calcareous soils. The steep slope gives later maturity. It has become a very famous terroir for the last fifteen years.
