Description

Charme is all about elegance, balance and finesse, achieved by taking special attention to the smallest details during the entire wine-making process. Made in traditional stone lagares with 100% grape stems, Charme's elegance is achieved using grapes from very old vineyards in Vale de Mendiz, on the banks of the Pinhao river. it is one of Dirk Niepoort's signature wine and the ultimate definition of his love for Burgundy.

Tasting Notes

A light, brilliant ruby appearance with delicate aromas of venison and cherries. The palate upholds these reductive and rustic notes, together with a beautifully balanced structure. Thanks to a maturation period in used barriques, the fruit remains elegant and in perfect harmony with the fine oaky notes and fine-grained tannins. A long and refreshing finish suggests that this wine will age very well.
