Charmes Chambertin

Here is another grand cru that can lead to plenty of confusion in naming. In terms of appellation law the name Mazoyères-Chambertin and Charmes-Chambertin are interchangeable, though it is much more common to see wines labeled as more friendly Charmes-Chambertin. Mazoyères-Chambertin is probably only used in 10% of the bottles produced. Though it is also said that the southern part of this 30.83 ha grand cru is named as Mazoyères, while the northern part is known as Charmes.

This is a rather big production amongst the grand crus of Gevrey-Chambertin and quality differs. Good winemakers can produce wines that have velvet texture but not lacking in intensity nor concentration. Some of them can be quite robust and exciting too. Armand Rousseau, Joseph Roty Denis Bachelet, Claude Dugat, Dujac, Vougeraie and Ponsot are well known sources.
