"(from vines on very shallow stony soil averaging at least 40 years of age): Bright, light yellow. Yellow peach, fresh apricot and a hint of menthol on the nose. Not an opulent style of Charmes, this wine is more about tension, with its fruit flavors dominated in the early going by menthol and saline minerality. Some exotic fruit hints here, but essentially quite tight."

The 2016 Meursault 1er Cru Les Charmes will come from three parcels eventually, although at the moment, this vintage just came from their plantings in Charmes-Dessus. It has a taut, well defined, quite mineral-driven bouquet that captures the potential of the vineyard, perhaps just a touch less rich than some others that I have encountered this vintage. The palate is well balanced with a fine line of acidity, sappy in the mouth, nice and saline and there is real tension and freshness on the finish... Excellent.

"Bright, snappy apple fruit on the nose, with plenty of concentration on the palate, but restrained weight and a savoury, refreshing finish. Enjoyable salinity on the aftertaste."
