"The 2009 vintage was blessed with warm, sunny weather. The south facing Le Charmoise parcel lies along side Chassagne-Montrachet's Les Chaumeers 1er cru and shares many of the same characteristics of its more expensive neighbor. Philippe Colin took advantage of the weather and this great terroir and crafted a thoroughly charming, mineral driven Burgundy. I recommend serving it slightly chilled and opening one half an hour before serving."
