Wine Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru 2004
Wine bright and deep ruby color.
Noble tannins give it a silky roundness. On the palate the wine candied cherry, exotic bark and hot spices.
The first impression of the wine - cherry flavor. After a few minutes of aeration manifested woody and spicy fragrance with subtle hints of musk in some years.
This noble wine deserves an appropriate accompaniment. Excellent meat, morels, truffles, wild hare and mature cheeses will be a wonderful complement to this fine wine.
