Irresistibly drinkable, the lovely, understated bouquet and flavor of Chardonnay in the true French manner. Produced by one of the area's most respected and skilled cooperatives, this distinguished, dry, white has been one of our most popular wines for many years. Richer and more intense than most Macons, "Les Charmes" comes from a vineyard specially prized for the age of its vines: some over 100 years old!
The 2018 sports a clear and shiny gold yellow color, with green highlights. The nose is fresh and fruity with notes of flowers and fruits (nuts, honey, acacia and citrus). On the palate it is medium-body, packed with delicate flavors of fruits with a slightly spicy finish. This wine benefit from the best of the appellation and stands out of the range of Mâcon-Villages, with a style close to the Crus du Maconnais.
