This is a fifth-generation estate that owns vineyards in some of the Côte de Beaune's finest terroirs. Jean-Pierre Charlot is wine maker. He is the son-in-law of Joseph Voillot and took over fully in 1995, having worked with his father-in-law since 1980. Before he joined the domaine, Jean-Pierre was a professor at the Lycée Viticole in Beaune. He now makes some of the loveliest and longest-keeping wines of the region.
Black and crunchy-fresh aromas meet the taster. Aromas are good and dense and nuanced by scents of both smoke and spice. The palate's entry is cool and black and wonderfully supple. Flavours are really very special indeed and the tannins here are upright and grippy. A dark wine and one showing abundant limestone minerality. Bowes Wine original note
All our wines are given a Sweetness Indicator from 1 to 5, with 1 being the driest and 5 being the sweetest.
This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab.
Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
