Dujac Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru
CHARMES CHAMBERTIN Grand Cru The Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru lies between the village of Morey-Saint-Denis to the south and Gevrey-Chambertin to the north. The plot lies east of the Grand Cru wine route, at the bottom of the hillside, where the slope is slight (3%). The plot ranges in altitude from 261 to 280 meters. The lieu-dit faces east-southeast. The soil changes from east to west. In the eastern part, the soil is 20 to 50 cm thick, and stony, with angular-to-blunt, fine-grained white Comblanchien limestone fragments. In the western part of the plot, the reddish-brown soil is of a similar thickness, with blunt crinoidal limestone fragments (calcaire à Entroques). Two types of substratum underlie the Charmes-Chambertin Grand Cru. The compact Comblanchien limestone in the eastern part of the plot is in contact with crinoidal limestone (calcaire à Entroques) in the western part, indicating the presence of a fault underlying this Grand Cru.
