"Le fruit d'un Beaujolais, le charme d'un Bourgogne" is a deep red colour, with cherry compote infused with star anise on the nose. The concentrated palate is serious and densely fruity, and well structured tannins suggest good ageing potential.
'Les Charmes' is one of the most prestigious of the six lieux-dit within Morgon, situated on higher slopes with sandy, granitic soils. South east facing Gamay vines, which are between 35 and 60 years of age, are managed following the principles of reasoned viticulture. The wine is aged for 6 months.
Try with Beef Bourgignon or a roasted leg of lamb. Also works with charcuterie and with a semi-soft cheese such as Livarot or a Saint-Marcellin.
