Coeur de Charmes is the flagship of Cave de Lugny range of wines, as well as the pride of our producers. This wine is produced from a specific and renowned area of the village of Lugny. Within this area, right at the heart, a distinctive zone of a few acres has been isolated for its particularly homogeneous geological characteristics, a clayey-marly soil set on a Kimmeridgian limestone sub-soil. The South East oriented slopes provides it with the best exposure to sunshine and therefore an early maturation. The average vine age is over 40 years. From the isolation of the grapes until the vinification process, two years of study of this specific zone have enabled Cave de Lugny to determine the full potential of this terroir, in order to produce this remarkable wine, and give life to Coeur de Charmes.
Cave de Lugny is a cooperative of over 250 wine-growing estates and 1,500 hectares all AOC Burgundy- Maconnais. Controlling approx 1/3 of production of Southern Burgundy and approx 50% of the total production of the Maconnais.
