TASTING NOTES

The 2018 Meursault Les Charmes 1er Cru has a backward bouquet that takes time to unfold, only reluctantly revealing delicate white peach, yellow plum and crushed stone aromas. A bit more coy than expected. The palate is discreet for a Charmes, precise as a Swiss watch, delivering a fine bead of acidity and a smooth, slightly honeyed finish. Very fine, though I wager not the best Charmes the domaine has produced in recent years.
