CHARME, Niepoort 2007

£72.50

Product Description

Charme is a rare wine from the Douro. The way its elegance combines with the smooth and mature tannins are unique in expressing old sheltered vineyards from Vale Mendiz in the heart of the Douro area in the Pinhão Valley. All the small details involving the production of Charme turn the final result difficult to achieve. In the end only the best barrels are chosen to be bottled as Charme.

A rich, fresh and elegant wine, light in colour, with fresh cherry and macerated raspberry aromas, earthy notes of mushrooms and truffles. Elegant notes of tea leaves and pipe tobacco and cigar. The taste is fresh, long, with very good structure, velvety tannins and great complexity of mineral notes and fresh fruit flavours. Great intensity and persistence.
