Description

Situated just south of Volnay and Pommard in the Côte de Beaune, Meursault is the most extensive southerly white wine commune of the Côte-d'Or. Surprisingly enough for an appellation of this quality, no Grand Cru exists, however the high quality of the 1er Cru more then compensates for this. The vineyard of Meursault « Charmes » is located just to the south of the village and is recognised to be one of the finest plots producing the Meursault appellation. The well-drained mineral soil is ideally-suited to the strain of Chardonnay grown here and the resultant wine is opulent and perfumed with very ripe peach, apple and nut flavours. A wonderful finish.

Tasting Note : Charming with an ethereal and floral nose, the Meursault 1er Cru "Charmes" 2012 is ample and well balanced in the mouth. Pineapple aromas mingle with notes of vanilla and brioche accompanied by a subtle oaky touch.
