91Vinous / IWC

...lovely bouquet with orange pith, lemon zest and light apricot aromas, floral and quite generous in style. The palate is fresh on the entry with a keen line of acidity, well balanced and nicely weighted, becoming waxier in texture towards the finish with fine length. Very fine.

Correct, light nose. Fresh and ferny-scented. Mid weight and good balance and appetising appeal...good mouthful. Cool and dense and dry. Appetising and with a very serious undertow.


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.
