Wine Advocate | Rating: 92Tasted blind at the Burgfest tasting in Beaune, the 2013 Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru from Hudelot-Noellat winemaker, Charles van Canneyt, has a modest bouquet with pretty red plum and redcurrant aromas, the oak lending some lift and neatly embroidered into the fruit. Nice purity here. The palate is medium-bodied with supple tannin, well judged acidity, modest depth with a clean and silky smooth finish that is a tad commercial, if not delivering the same complexity as its peers. However, it does improve and has a pleasant piquancy. Tasted September 2016.Author: Neal Martin
Burgundy is home to some of the greatest and most expensive wines in the world. Stretching from Auxerre in the north to Lyon in the south, the region's most famous section is the limestone-rich Côte d'Or. Vineyards in Burgundy are classified according to their locations on the hillsides. Only 2% of total production is from grand cru sites, while premier cru and village-level wines are more common. It is rare for one domaine to own an entire vineyard; rather the land has been divided down to individual rows, in some cases as a result of inheritance laws. While other varieties can be found in Burgundy, and reign supreme. The best examples are capable of aging for 15 years or more, a rarity for these two varieties, making them highly valuable.
