Our oenologists' opinion

Fruity and well-rounded

Its garnet color offers an open nose, red fruit gratin, nutmeg and roasted coffee. On the palate, this wine presents a supple and vinous attack, with a pretty character and fairly present tannins. Final on red fruits.

Features

Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.

Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.

Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.

Tannins ? Coming from stems, grape pips and their storage barrels, the tannin gives structure to red wines only.

Do you know ?

The Charlet wines already had an excellent clientele at that time in the Paris region: we find in particular the delivery of a piece of wine to Monsieur Gabriel, the first architect of King Louis XVI who worked at the Château de Versailles!

Domain and appellation

  • Jacques Charlet

    In the 18th century, the Charlet family owned and marketed wines in Saint-Amour and Juliénas, on the border of Burgundy and Beaujolais. Today, Jacques Charlet is run by the Barbet family, linked to Charlet following several weddings. They also own the historic properties located in Saint-Amour and Juliénas.

     

    • Terroir: By the diversity of soils and exhibitions, each plot has a unique character. We select the wines of the best "climates" and take care to preserve all their character.

       
    • Viticulture: To pick the grapes at optimum maturity remains our golden rule. This philosophy results in two principles: the quality of the harvest and respect for the typicality of our terroirs.

       
    • Vinification: Depending on the estate and the vintages, we will opt for aging in vats, wooden casks or oak casks. The wines are in cellar and here the time has more hold. Our wines are resting, rounding, sharpening the necessary time, before being bottled with delicacy.
