With an elegant nose of flowers and ripe fruits, the Meursault Charmes bursts on the scene with a powerful floral and green apple explosion in the mouth.

PRODUCER

Domaine Boyer-Martenot

Domaine Boyer-Martenot is a 25-acre estate based in Meursault, in Burgundy’s Cote de Beaune. Now run by the third and fourth generations of the founding family, the estate is known for its Premier Cru Meursault and Puligny-Montrachet, as well as other Chardonnays. Its wines are consistently praised by reviewers.

REGION

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.”

TYPE

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.
