“The 2017 Meursault Les Charmes 1er Cru comes from the last parcel before Puligny, the vines planted in 1945. It has a fragrant floral bouquet with dried apricot, orange blossom, hints of caramelized pear and spice. The palate is well balanced with a fine bead of acidity, very pure with good salinity and a very long persistent finish that is vrai Premier Cru.”
“The 2017 Meursault 1er Cru Les Charmes exhibits notes of green orchard fruit, iodine, hazelnut cream and honeycomb. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, layered and concentrated, with bright acids and the most dimension and structure of Chavy's wines this year. Fresh and detailed, it's a persuasive Merusault Charmes that will reward several years' bottle age.”
