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 Pale yellow in colour our Meursault 1er Cru "Charmes" is very charming
with its rich bouquet of white fruits, grilled almonds and a hint of butter. Ample and supple on tasting with citrus fruits on the finish.
Cellaring Potential 5-7 years
Food Pairing Vol-au-Vent - rump of veal - freshwater pike - morels - cheese
Serving temperature 12-14°
Meursault 1er Cru "Les Charmes" 2007
- Jamie Goode's Wineanorak - April 2010 - 91/100
Broad, nutty, minerally nose with nice fruit and hints of nuts and vanilla. The palate is a bit pithy and citrussy with nice density. Savoury and tight. Structured, with some oak evident.

Broad strokes of apple cake, butterscotch and spice lead off in this powerful white. The racy acidity subdues it on the finish for now. Needs time to integrate. Best from 2011 through 2019. By Bruce Sanderson, USA.
- Burghound.com - July 2009 - 89-91/100
Obvious but not really intrusive wood treatment still allows the hazelnut and white peach aromas to express themselves before dissolving into rich, full and very fresh and energetic middle weight flavors that are also quite dry but don't possess the depth of material on the otherwise solidly persistent finish. 2012+
