Les Charmes is 100% Chardonnay and the pride of Cave de Lugny. All the grapes are sourced from a single vineyard, a 259 acres plateau named Les Charmes, in the commune of Lugny. This single vineyard is characterized by chalky-limestone soil and South/South-East orientation that provides the best sun exposure for the (on average) 40 year old vines.
The nose explodes with aromas of citrus, peach and apricot followed by a wonderful balance between acidity and sweetness with a marked freshness. The structure and slightly spicy flavor of Les Charmes makes it unique among Mâconnais wines. The wine is still very aromatic and very fresh after aging. Suggested pairings include fish, seafood and poultry, especially roast chicken. (from the vintner)
