Among the highest in altitude of Morgon’s climats, Les Charmes provides an excellent stylistic contrast to the silky delight of Corcelette and Côte du Py’s regal, profound granitic poise.
True to its name, Charmes is a bright, lively Morgon evoking little wild red berries backed by a mouth-watering acidity and a stimulating mineral bite. Given the Foillard treatment, of course—organic farming plus a traditional whole-cluster fermentation with native yeast, aging in neutral wood, and unfiltered bottling with a minimal SO2 dose—this vineyard yields a wine true to its terroir. You’ll find Foillard’s trademark texture, that feeling of utter purity and sexiness when granite stone meets liquid velvet.
Charmes drinks superbly today and should cellar well over the next five years. Don’t miss this delicious new interpretation of Morgon from one of the best in the business.
Let the brett nerds retire into protective bubbles, and whenever they thirst for wine it can be passed in to them through a sterile filter. Those of us on the outside can continue to enjoy complex, natural, living wines.
