98Robert M. Parker Jr.

Exhibits decadent levels of richness, amazing amounts of glycerin, and an extraction level... The huge nose of super-ripe apples, buttered toast, and nuts is followed by a wine of awesome richness, and phenomenal length and poise.

93Stephen Tanzer

Exotic, superripe aromas of peach, marzipan, hazelnut, almond and charred oak. Big, superrich and ripe; powerful and very concentrated. Impressive palate-staining finish is fat, sweet and very long.


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.
