Meursault Premier Cru Charmes
2011
2010

This wine was produced from Chardonnay vines with an age of nearly 45 years, sited in rocky limestone and white marl soils with a south-east aspect, mid-way up the slope south-west of the fabled village of Meursault. The growing season and harvest in 2011 were superb for Chardonnay, with wonderful ripeness of fruit, purity and minerality. Bottled after 16 months in barrel, this is a racy wine of ripe fruit character and purity. A delicious wine to drink by itself or an ideal accompaniment to fresh langoustines, grilled sardines or lightly spiced mackerel.

Wine Notes
Color
Bright straw in color with hints of yellow gold and a water white rim.
Aroma
Intense nose of lime juice, lemon zest and white peach with hints of toast, butter, vanilla, macadamia nut and apricot.
Taste
Lean, pure and mineral with a well defined, yet soft acidic structure and lovely clean texture. Citrus elements, lemon, lime and gooseberry fruit, and some mineral and nutty notes balance well with a trace of ginger and star anise spice. Long finish.
