RATINGS

93Wine Spectator

Juicy, refreshing and elegant, this white sports peach, floral, citrus and butter aromas and flavors.

92Stephen Tanzer

A complex blend of orchard and citrus fruits and hazelnut on the nose and palate. Offers a much more refined texture than any of the village wines, with harmonious acidity and a floral element brightening the fruit on the middle palate...finishes long and firm, with a touch of sweetness and an element of finesse.

17Jancis Robinson

Intense aroma that has a fine mix of fruit and winemaking – a leesy, spicy richness and bright zesty freshness. Not particularly dense but great balance and length.

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.
