90+ Stephen Tanzer

Lemon, crushed stone, menthol and nutty oak on the nose. Big, rich, sweet and stuffed with pineapple and dusty stone flavor...very ripe... Finishes dusty and long.

A naturally spicy nose that is showing a bit more wood than is typical offers up a beautifully nuanced blend of ripe pear, white peach, apricot and citrus blossom aromas that are followed by very rich, round and an equally complex flavor profile that is a bit more refined as well as a bit better balanced on the roasted nut suffused finish. This is really quite lovely.


France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Beaune, Meursault, Les Charmes

Les Charmes, at 78 acres, is Meursault’s largest Premier Cru vineyard. Like its neighboring Premier Crus, Les Genevrieres and Les Perrieres, is is south of the commune of Meursault and very close to Puligny-Montrachet. Since Meursault lacks a Grand Cru, Meursault’s reputation for excellence is based on the Premier Crus, particularly the whites. Les Charmes abuts Puligny-Montrachet. Burgundy writer Clive Coates writes that “there is an attractive, soft flowery character to a Charmes: peach blossom, delicately nutty, gently honeyed.”


White Wine, Chardonnay, 1er (Premier) Cru

This white variety originated in Burgundy, but is now grown around the world. Its flexibility to thrive in many regions translates to wide flavor profile in the market. Chardonnay is commonly used in making Champagne and sparkling wines.
