Tasting notes for the Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru 2014 - Philippe Pacalet (Magnum)

  • EYE: The grand cru wine presents itself in the glass with an intense and deep ruby red hue, evoking the characteristic density of Burgundy's finest. Its clarity and brilliant aspect reveal careful vinification, emphasizing the winemaker's expertise. The slightly garnet tint on the edges suggests subtle evolution, while the presence of elegant legs denotes a certain alcoholic concentration.
  • NOSE: This magnum unveils a complex and refined bouquet. Aromas of ripe red fruits, such as black cherry and raspberry, intertwine with delicate notes of undergrowth, truffle, and leather. Aeration reveals discreet floral nuances, evoking violet, along with subtle minerality. The oak barrel aging is evident in well-integrated touches of vanilla and cedar, highlighting the balance between fruitiness and aromatic complexity.
  • MOUTH: A remarkable harmony. The silky texture of the tannins, combined with vibrant acidity, imparts an elegant and balanced structure to the wine. The palate reveals an impressive depth, with persistent flavors of red fruits, wild blackberry, and cherry, supported by subtle hints of licorice and tobacco. The enviable length of the finish unveils the nobility of this vintage, leaving a lasting impression of finesse and complexity.


In short: This Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru 2014 by Philippe Pacalet, bottled in magnum format, promises an optimal aging potential of 10 to 15 years, or even more under appropriate storage conditions. Ideal for enthusiasts of mature wines, it pairs perfectly with gastronomic dishes such as Beef Wellington, roasted duck with cherries, salt-crusted pigeon, and aged Epoisses cheese. The complexity of this wine will reveal its full splendor when enjoyed with dishes that enhance its richness and depth.

Philippe Pacalet

Famous Beaune winemaker


Philippe Pacalet is from a family established in the Burgundian vineyard. He began his professional activity with his uncle, Marcel Lapierre, precursor in research and defense of natural wines without sulfur. As oenologist at Domaine Prieuré in Côte d'Or, until 2001, he began to implement his non-interventionist approach, aiming for a respect for nature and winemaking methods without sulfur or industrial yeasts. He is still using those methods, since his installation in Beaune.

Philippe Pacalet rents for his activity 8 hectares on the Côte de Beaune, of carefully selected vines, and produces wines from more than 20 appellations. Manual harvesting, selecting only mature grapes, allow him to produce very fine wines of great aromatic purity and precision. The wines from this producer are also widely known for their sweetness and complexity, as well as their consistency between nose/mouth.
