This Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru is magnificent, strong and refined.

Having helmed the iconic Domaine Hudelot-Noellat since 2008, Charles Van Canneyt is well known among burgundy connoisseurs.  Charles is Alain Hudelot’s grandson and a very talented and skilled winemaker in his own right. Through his extensive network of Burgundy’s finest growers, Charles sources excellent grapes. By style, it’s aligned with the family wines, pure and terroir transparent.

The grand cru Chapelle-Chambertin is magnificently well located just below the Chambertin Grand Cru, the king of all the grand crus of the village. Its delicate nose shows finesse and freshness with flavours of sweet red cherries, eucalyptus and subtle floral scents.

On the palate, one will find an abundance of delicacy with a silky structure supporting a long finish. It can be paired with game, charcoaled beef or cow cheese. It can be decanted for 45 minutes before serving or cellared up until 2030+. 100% Pinot Noir.

"The Charmes-Chambertin grand cru is feminine in style with floral notes laced with the textbook sweet cherry scents of the climat. A highly enjoyable Grand Cru, persistent and delicate."

Charles Van Canneyt buys must through an enviable network of top quality growers. His aim is to work with likeminded vignerons, who are respectful of their soil and who have exceptionally well-located vineyards. After being pressed, the wine is collected to be aged in Charles’ cellar. Maturation is undertaken in French oak barrels with 20% new oak for twelve months.
