Les Charmes is a 9.53-hectare Premier Cru climat located in the commune and appellation of Chambolle-Musigny. Comprised of three separate parcels, the vineyard lies midslope at approximately 260 meters of elevation, to the south of Les Plantes and to the north of Les Amoureuses. The soil and style are very similar to Le Musigny and Les Amoureuses. Facing east, northeast, Les Charmes has a limestone soil, rich in gravel and sand, with some influence of red clay, but the topsoil is thin and runs to a depth of only 40-50 cm over the underlying base of Bathonian limestone.
The vineyard name derives, alas, not from the seductive allure of its wine but from the Latin-based word meaning field that also engendered the modern French champs (“field”).
