Floral, citronella and mineral flavors mark this lean, pointed white. Intense, though the profile is more bony than its peers in this vintage. Fine length. Drink now through 2024.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2015 Meursault 1er Cru Les Charmes has a lightly honeyed bouquet that needed a little coaxing from the glass. The palate is fresh and crisp on the entry and appears quite effervescent, offering notes of orange zest, brown spices and green apple, gently building to a lively finish that just needs more aftertaste to come through. Hopefully that will develop by the time it is in bottle.
Wines from Meursault are typified by aromas and flavors of ripe melon, hazelnut, and lemon custard, and tend to be broader and more textural than wines from neighboring villages. Aging in 30-35% percent small French oak barrels lends notes of toast and vanilla.
White Burgundy, with its richness, texture, and toasted flavors pairs well with light fish and shellfish and can counterbalance cream-based sauces.
