2020 Amiot Servelle Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru 'Les Charmes' 750Ml BottleRegular price $249.00
Christian Amiot describes the family's Les Charmes as being more southern Chambolle in style – more fruit. It has nice minerality and is with more structure than the adjoining “Les Feusselottes”. The domaine has a nice slice, a 1.3 hectare parcel with some 60yo+ vines in the heart of Les Charmes, which itself is in the heart of the commune. This has 40% whole bunch, and 18 months ageing in barrels, 30% new. The soil is shallow, just ½ a metre, and the plots are in the centre of the combe, helping to give a wine of structure and power with good acid-retaining cool air flows at night. "This is a key wine of our domaine and it has strong but never coarse tannins; it’s dense and generous with a mineral aftertaste", says Prune.
"The 2020 Chambolle-Musigny Les Charmes 1er Cru... has one of the finest aromatics from the Domaine with quite precise and pure brambly red fruit, crushed stone and rose petal scents. The palate is medium-bodied with fine tannins, well-integrated oak, fine grip towards the finish. Give it four to five years in bottle." 91-93pts - Neal Martin, Vinous
