Charmes is a new bottling for Leroux; he formerly purchased Mazoyères, which was sometimes labelled as Charmes, but now he has a parcel of Aux Charmes and the fruit from Mazoyères. The new parcel this year has produced a wine with sweet black cherry fruit and notes of rose petals and liquorice. It is silkier and more supple than the Mazoyères, which is more structured. It was racked fairly early but is going back into barrel for a second winter before bottling. The wine will be approachable fairly soon after bottling and should age well for several decades. 94 Charles Curtis MW, Decanter (2023).

All now comes from Charmes itself. Not too deep in colour, all in the strawberry style of fruit which makes Charmes so appealing up front. Good weight, especially as the wine develops on the palate, with refreshing acidity. 4 barrels made. *** 93-96 Jasper Morris, Inside Burgundy (2023).

Drinking Window: 2035 - 2065
