Chateau de Chamirey 1er Cru Clos du Roi


Type: Pinot Noir  Region: Burgundy, France

Pairs well with: Semi-hard cheese, Soft cheese


Tasting Note

The Château de Chamirey’s progress continues, as the estate moves away from herbicide use in the vineyards and toward gentler vinification. There’s less punching down during fermentation, young wines are being settled longer before going to barrel, and racking now takes place using gas pressure rather than a pump. A new bottling line permits the washing and inerting of bottles before filling. Cooperage choices and percentages are being refined too, exemplified by the fact the domaine’s prestige cuvée, “Le Cinq,” now sees only 70% new oak in lieu of 100%. All in all, the positive trend continues, and this is a fine set of 2019s—sumptuous, succulent wines, bursting with expressive fruit that effectively conceals their alcoholic degree.

Beautiful and intense ruby colour. Intense nose with concentrated black fruit notes blackberry, plum and cassis. Grassy and red fruit notes. On the palate the wine is rich, round and supple with silky tannins. Good length and intensity.


Wine & Cheese Pairing

For cheese pairings, you may want to try rich and buttery cheeses such as Brie or Camembert. These types of cheeses have a soft and creamy texture that complements the wine’s rich and velvety mouthfeel.

Another great option is nutty and savory cheese such as Comte or Gruyere. These types of cheeses have a complex and sharp flavor that pairs well with the wine’s structure and depth.
