Notes from North Berkeley Imports:

Estate vines are located in four separate parcels in this larger grand cru vineyard, two-thirds of which hail from Charmes proper; the rest from Mazoyères-Chambertin. Soils are brown limestone, some gravel, but shallow; the “mother rock” of pure limestone is close to the surface.

Raphet wines are a Burgundy lover’s Burgundy. While the wine’s color in the glass is a delicate ruby, aromas and flavors surprise with their forceful intensity. This contrast often catches the uninitiated off guard, yet it is part of the seduction of these limited and highly sought-after wines. Raphet Burgundy is handmade from field to bottle, with a rhythm and method that hasn’t changed in more than four generations. Pinot Noir
vines at the estate are on average very old, with many surpassing 100 years.
