2009 Meursault Premier Cru Charmes

Born on a gentle slope in the largest Meursault Premier Cru lieu-dit, this Chardonnay Premier cru evokes the most delicate lacework. Yet for all its tenderness and subtlety, it will keep years in the cellar.

  • A pretty, pale gold in the glass with a richness on the nose that immediately grabs attention—a nose suggestive of honey and almonds but also with dusky floral notes and, later, apples and the heady perfume of honeysuckle. Then, quite startlingly, the wine is redolent of dried figs. Rich, highly extracted, and comparatively high in alcohol (13.5%). As impactful on the palate as it is on the nose, with caramel and figs again, and a seductive, extended finish with resiny grip. A wine for the hedonist. Delicious already, but still evolving.
