The French domaine's vineyards are located throughout the Côte de Nuits, Côte de Beaune and Côte Châlonnaise areas. They cultivate their different grape varieties, Chardonnay for white wines and Pinot Noir for red, on east and south-facing slopes, in a clay and chalk soil. Wines are produced using age-old traditions combined with today’s most advanced technologies (especially in terms of temperature control, analysis, and inspection / sampling). Aged in oak casks for between 12 and 18 months, depending on the vintage and terroir, their wines have been featured in every single industry publication and all their wines have been rated by the most demanding wine critics. White Burgundy wines, benefiting from the best climate of the estate, are rich and complex with hints of vanilla, hazelnut, toasted almonds, yellow peach and honey. Well suited for aging, their red Burgundy wines are full-bodied and elegant, with flavors of fresh red fruits. Charles Mignon is one of the premium labels they use in the United States for their finer wines that are exclusively sold in high-end restaurants and clubs.

"Quite buttery aromas of stone fruit and caramel. A spicy mouthful of honeyed apricot and subtle wood. Impeccable balance."
90 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"This is a wine that is about tropical fruits, softness and ripeness. It is definitely full-bodied, needing to show its structure, but the spice, toast and yellow fruit flavors are all immediately attractive"
