Meursault 1er Cru Charmes 1999

Meursault 1er Cru Charmes 1999

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.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Dense and concentrated, this is certainly a wine for aging, powered by minerality and taut structure. This is a fine wine, the green fruits and pear flavors surrounding toast and acidity, while vanilla rounds the wine at the end.The rich bouquet expresses delicate notes of vanilla and the mouth nice aromas of stone fruit.
Ratings
Meursault 1er Cru "Charmes" 2006 - Burghound.com - 90/100 A deft touch of wood sets off a fresh and expressive nose dominated by ripe orchard fruit and lemon peel aromas that slide into finer and more elegant still medium-bodied flavors that are round, lush and opulent with a seductive mouth feel and fine length. Compared to the Gouttes d'Or it perhaps lacks a bit of energy but this is still quite attractive. 2010+.
