Meursault is the center of four communes that make up the Côte des Blancs, named for the predominantly white wines produced there. The soils of Les Charmes are richer and heavier than the soils of Les Perrières, just above it on the slope, making Les Charmes the more typical, masculine Meursault. The Chardonnay grapes are fermented and matured in oak barrels for a total of 15 to 18 months.

Harvest Note
This was a somewhat turbulent growing season. Lack of soil moisture and a poor fruit set diminished the harvest volumes.
Tasting Note
Classic aromas of citrus zest and wet stones touched with roasted hazelnut are present, while on the palate this is sleek, refined and very long.
Food Pairing
Perfect with sauteed seabass or baked cod, will also pair well with classic ripe soft cheeses.

About the Grape

Though it has a distinctive profile, Chardonnay reflects other factors such as soil composition and vinification technique. Chardonnay is a reliable, hardy and prolific vine whose only real vulnerabilities are frost and uneven development of fruit.
