Charles Van Canneyt Gevrey-Chambertin 2017
Region: Gevrey-Chambertin - Bourgogne
Variety: Pinot Noir
Charles Van Canneyt is what we would call in Australia, a “Young Gun of Wine”. Superbly talented at his young age, he is already famously the winemaker and manager of Domaine Hudelot-Noëllat in Vougeot.
Since 2012, Charles has been making his very own tiny amounts of wine under his name. With his credentials earnt over the past few years and his reputation in Burgundy, Charles has been granted access to some of the most sought after vineyards of the Côte de Nuits. By sourcing exceptional fruit, he produces true wines of terroir, using very little new oak, he wants each of his Pinot Noirs to be true reflections of their vineyard.
Gevrey-Chambertin is home of the world famous Grand Cru vineyards Chambertin and Clos-de-Bèze. Some of these vineyards' characteristics can be found in this wine: intense scents of cherries, redcurrants and cranberries, and offering the structure for a long living wine.
