Tasting notes

Old Liquors, Henri Maire grapes

A subtle wine. Its highly developed, the enchanting nose gives off walnut, wild mushroom, and spicy aromas. Its complex, the elegant structure is very present in the mouth. A remarkable range of aromas then open up on the palate: well-developed walnut, dried fruit, curry, saffron, and roasted hints. The finish is long and very persistent. 

Cellaring time

This remarkable wine is ready to drink as soon as it is bottled, but can also be kept in a cellar for several generations. Opened bottles keep for several weeks.

Terroir

Old Liquors, Henri Maire, Vineyards

It is the composition of the soil that is necessary to produce Château-Chalon. The particular character of the wine is in part due to the blue and grey marl from the Liassic, augmented by the limestone outcrops that form the higher cliffs. This, in turn, helps the warming of the microclimate, and that enables the grapes to ripen fully. The altitude of this particular band of marl varies between 250 and 400 meters above sea level. The orientation of the slopes gives the best exposure (south to the south-west) and the optimum protection to the vines.
