Domaine Vignoble Charmet, Beaujolais, France
It all began in 1650 when the first Charmet winemaker settled on the slope of La Ronze. In the quest for perfection in elaborating our wines, Domaine Vignoble Charmet has gained itself a very special status (and many prizes at wine competitions) thanks to its finesse and elegance, as well as its finish and fruit character and, last but not least, its subtle aromas.
Coteaux Bourguignons Chardonnay
The family's Chardonnay vines are 30 years old and grow in soils that are granitic with calcareous clay. In the spring, a careful disbudding is done by hand, to minimize yield and ensure quality grapes.
Domaine Vignoble Charmet's Chardonnay is fermented at a low temperature in vats to gain body and finesse, then matured in stainless steel for about a year, to encourage complexity, while maintaining freshness. The resulting wine has finesse and elegance, as well as subtle aromas and an extended finish.
