Chateau de Meursault Les Charmes Dessus Premier Cru 2020

7 units available online.
Product description

With over 1000 years of history, Chateau de Meursault follows an approach of excellence in respect of nature, the environment, and the climates. Charmes, often written as Les Charmes, is one of Meursault's largest and best-known Premier Cru vineyards. Found on the lower slope of the Cote d'Or at the southern end of the village, it is one of a cluster of top climats with Genevrieres on the northern border and Perrieres above it on the slopes. Charmes Premier Cru wines, made entirely from Chardonnay, are vibrant and honeyed with rich, nutty characters and floral overtones.

The nose is fruity, racy and reveals a nice graininess and a fine minerality. There are notes of mirabelle plum, kumquat and, more slightly, gunflint combined with delicate touches of fresh yellow fruit, white flowers (honeysuckle, acacia, etc.) as well as discreet hints of nutmeg/spice and a subtle touch of chestnut.

On the palate, this wine expresses notes of quince, tangerine and, to a lesser extent, medlar, combined with hints of acacia, honeysuckle, as well as fine hints of yellow berries, fresh oak and a discreet hint of fresh almond. A subtle almost tannic quality on the finish/persistence and a lot of finesse. Good length. 

94+ Points - Jasper Morris

Pure fine lemon colour. A noble terroir here, with a wonderful depth to the bouquet, very classy, too well balanced to be described as heady, exceptional but balanced power in the mouth with its classical chiselled finish, and superb length.
