Meursault Premier Cru Les Charmes White 2020

Meursault "Les Charmes" 1er crus - 2020

  • Production:1115 bottles and 12 magnums.
  • Philosophy The power of terroir: An unrivalled Meursault Premier Cru and a ce­ lebrated classic, the “Charmes” climat once again offers an example of the role terroir plays in Burgundy. Identified over the centuries by wine­ growers for its unique qualities, its vines were specially pampered and its grapes vinified separately, little by little building the appellation’s repu­ tation and uniqueness. The wines from “Charmes”, as deep and powerful as they may be, are nonetheless charming.
  • TerroirLocated south of the village, at mid­slope, the “Charmes” plot is one of the three most prestigious Premier Crus from this legendary village in the Côte de Beaune, which has no Grand Crus. The largest climat in Meursault, “Charmes” is usually subdivided in two terroirs: “Charmes­ Dessus” (Upper) and “Charmes­Dessous” (Lower). Most of the grapes for our Meursault­Charmes come from “Charmes­Dessus”, a calcareous clay terroir with a high proportion of pebbles at the surface.
  • Vinification and ageingThe grapes were handpicked and gently pressed after sorting. The juice obtained was then allowed to settle for approximately 24 hours before being transferred to barrels where it underwent slow fermentation, relying on indigenous yeasts. Malolactic fermentation, which also occurred slowly due to the coolness of our cellars, finished in the spring. The wine was stirred regularly to return the lees into suspension. Ageing lasted a total of 15 months, in oak barrels (50% new oak) from Bourgogne and Central France forests.
  • Tasting notesBeautiful golden yellow in colour. The nose is magnificently ripe, rich and elegant with extremely intense aromas. The first scents are remi- niscent of fruit salad (peach, mango), almonds and hazelnuts, followed by refreshing notes of freshly cut grass and delicate white blossoms. Rich yet fresh start to the palate, which boasts superb balance between sucrosity and salinity along with f lavours of praliné and spicy notes of ground cinnamon, vanilla and rum. This is a superb white wine, boasting excellent cellaring potential..
