Domaine Humbert Freres Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru 2013
Humbert brothers swapped roles with Manou moving into the winery and Frédéric into the vineyard, and they haven’t looked back since. A larger than life, rugby-playing winemaker, Manou draws out clear definition in his wines. There is noticeable clarity between the brothers’ many terroirs in Fixin and Gevrey-Chambertin, impressive precision indeed. These are wines that display glorious elegance and finesse, wines that are fruit-driven without the merest hint of oak dominance.
