Charles points to the very damp winter and spring providing sufficient ground reserves of water to combat the relentless summer heat, giving perfect quality, pure fruit, free from rot and with surprisingly good acidity and freshness. Whilst Meursault’s historically drier soils than Puligny and Chassagne have tended to result in bigger, more opulent wines, the increasing preference amongst the new generation of growers for earlier harvests, more reduction, less battonage, and less and bigger new oak barrels, really help to preserve freshness, elegance and tension. n a vintage like 2018 this seems especially important. I found Charles’ wines this year amongst the most satisfying whites tasted, rich and intense, but with an opulence supported by a good vein of balancing acidity and mineral depths.

From eighty year old vines in the superior Dessus section of the vineyard, this has a solidly patrician nose of masterful Meursault. Later picked, herbal and smoky, with sweet spiced baked apple and toasted nuts on the nose. Lean and long, with waxed lemon acidity and lingering salinity on the finish.Tom, Wine Guru
