The Les Charmes vineyard in Morgon has soil that is made up of crumbly, decomposed rock, mainly consisting of pyritic schist that is rich in iron oxide and manganese.
The grapes are hand picked and sorted before traditional vinification methods are employed. Carbonic maceration lasts for 8-10 days before the wine is transferred to concrete tanks to complete its alcoholic fermentation.
Malolactic fermentation takes places in older Burgundy barrels and the wine is aged in oak for 6-8 months, depending upon the style of the vintage.
Food Match: Duck, Turkey or Ham. Great with left over Christmas meats.
