Les Charmes largely escaped the frost in 2016 so there was no need to reduce the crop in 2017. This comes from two parcels of 40 and 70-year-old vines which make up a total of 0.25ha. There’s a hint of good reduction on the nose which leads you into a palate that's crunchy, chalky and refreshing, unfurling flavours of raspberry and pomegranate supported by polished tannins.

Like the Petits Vougeots, the 2017 Chambolle “Charmes” still had a touch of gas remaining on the palate from its later malo. The bouquet is pure and very refined, wafting from the glass in a mix of black cherries, plums, cocoa powder, violets, chalky soil tones and a nice framing of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, long and complex, with a fine core of fruit, excellent transparency, tangy acids and very good focus and grip on the long and promising finish. I am sure this will be lovely. 2025-2065.
The 2017 Chambolle-Musigny 1er Cru Les Charmes is a real success, wafting from the glass with notes of raspberries, cherries, rose petals, dark spices and grilled squab. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, layered and concentrated, with satiny tannins, a succulent core of fruit and an elegant sense of effortlessness that exemplifies the vintage at its best, concluding with a long finish. This is a successful vintage for Charles Van Canneyt at Domaine Hudelot-Noëllat. The wines are supple and charming, gaining in-depth, seriousness and complexity as one ascends the hierarchy of appellations and vine age. After the concentrated and compelling 2015s and 2016s, both vintages built for the cellar despite their decidedly different styles, 2017 represents a high quality but more immediate, structurally open-knit year for the Domaine, and for impatient consumers, that is no bad thing. The domaine's roster of appellations will be familiar to readers by now, with the exception of a promising new Meursault from the lieu-dit Clos des Ecoles—a parcel formerly farmed by the Domaine Coche-Dury.

from 30+ year old vines). A pungent nose is comprised by notes of wood and reduction. The medium weight flavors are also attractively rich and generously proportioned with a sleek and supple mouthfeel that is enhanced by the equally fine grain of the supporting tannins on the dusty and saline finish. This is lovely and very Charmes in personality.
The 2017 Chambolle-Musigny Les Charmes 1er Cru, matured in around 25% new oak, has a perfumed, floral bouquet, peony and incense infusing the black cherry and boysenberry fruit. The palate is medium-bodied with a fresh, slightly confit-like opening, moderate depth and a fresh line of acidity. Then a dash of spice toward the finish lends welcome tension and persistence. Fine.
