Charmots is a Premier Cru vineyard just above Les Grands Epenots, on the same band of elevation as its near neighbor, Beaune Clos des Mouches. Like that vineyard, with some bottle age this site develops classic violet floral notes on the nose. Laurent Jobard, the retired Drouhin enologist, runs this domaine along with her sister Mireille. Their wines are balanced and delicate, but never weak. With time they gain lots of complexity. The vineyard management is done in an extremely natural fashion, without the use of fertilizers or herbicides.
