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

The 2018 Charme displays a brilliant light ruby appearance, with very delicate aromas of cherries, raspberries, earthy forest floor notes and hints of tea leaves. The palate is fine and intense, with superb freshness, a very elegant structure with velvety tannins. With only 10% of new oak in the final blend, the subtle structure stemming from the wood integrates seamlessly with the fruit and acid-driven freshness.
