Cool terroir has produced a perfumed and structured wine, with more tannin and substance than you might expect from Charmes, along with a seductive, velvety red berry fruit. If slightly austere today, this will open beautifully with some more time in bottle. Produced from a parcel that Duband farms in Mazoyères, near the border with Latricières that formerly belonged to Jacky Truchot; some parts planted in the 1920s in the alluvial soils from the Combe Grisard.
This is clearly from Gevrey as the more expressive though still reserved nose flashes plenty of underbrush and sauvage elements on the dark currant and floral-suffused nose. There is equally good volume and richness to the medium-bodied and delicious flavors that culminate in a balanced and hugely long though youthfully austere finish. This is also really very good though unlike the Clos de la Roche, this should be approachable after only a decade.92-94
