Le Charmel Rhone wine is a beautiful wine with generous aromas of blackberries, chocolate and spice. On the palate, it is remarkably smooth and long with a rich finish. The wine is perfect with beef, lamb and chicken and pasta dishes as well as firmer and strong cheeses.

Wine maker notes
Le Charmel comes from a superb vineyard in the Costieres de Nimes which is located in the South of the Rhone Valley, on the right (West) bank of the river. The soil is primarily made of clay and limestone which contributes to great concentra- tion. It is covered with pebbles and stones (similar to Cha- teauneuf du Pape) which accumulate the heat during the day and deliver it back overnight, which further increases the grape maturity. Our vineyards are grown sustainably, respecting the natural elements. Only limited fertilizers are allowed.

Producer
Mel and Janie are from England but both now US citizens. Mel has been in the wine business ever since leaving school and he met Janie when they were only twelve and thirteen (she played the piano and he played the guitar!) and as they grew up together, they shared a passion for food and wine. They married at 19 and 20. The couple left England to live in France in 1970 and started a company called Master Wines and began selling little known French wines in the USA. Mel was a pioneer in bringing great wine values to the USA from France.
