    Winemaker Notes

    Charmes-Chambertin has a bright, ruby colour and a seductive nose where cherry and pit flavours dominate. After a few minutes of aeration, a more woody, even spicy, aroma comes out and seems to play a game of "hide and seek" with the fruit.

    The flavours are all extraordinary in their richness: neither rough nor heavy, the architecture of the wine is a marvel of harmony, with very fine and noble tannins bringing a silky roundness to the wine. This is what people in Burgundy call the gras. A more energetic note is added by the acidity. The impressions left on the palate are yet another chapter to this story: candied cherry, exotic barks, refined spices ; according to some experts, this is where the real tasting begins... and it goes on and on.

    This is a grand wine which deserves the best accompaniment: prime meat, morels, truffles, wild hare, aged cheeses. Charmes-Chambertin is a rare and generous wine for the greatest occasions.

    Since 1880, Maison Joseph Drouhin has built a reputation for wines that primarily reflect their individual terroir and vintage. Faithfully preserving the individuality of each appellation, the Drouhin firm constantly strives for wines of breed, finesse and elegance.

    A balance of tradition and modern techniques characterizes Joseph Drouhin winemaking and vineyard management: on site nursery, plowing, leaf removal, 100% hand harvesting, open fermenters, fermenting and aging in oak.

    As a result of its historic location deep in the heart of Beaune, the quality of its vineyards and the expertise resulting from years of experience in the cultivation of vines and traditional vinification, Maison Joseph Drouhin is uniquely placed to uphold authentic Burgundian style.

    Starting with Joseph Drouhin, who founded Maison Joseph Drouhin over a century ago, a great estate has evolved with important holdings in Côte de Beaune, Côte de Nuits, Chablis and, most recently, Oregon.

    MAISON JOSEPH DROUHIN AWARDED ORGANIC CERTIFICATION Estate-grown Grapes of 2009 Vintage and later Now Officially Organic. Twenty years after Philippe Drouhin first began introducing organic practices to the vineyards making up the family company’s domaine (estate), Maison Joseph Drouhin (MJD), has been awarded organic certification for all grapes grown within its vineyards beginning with the 2009 vintage.
