Village Level White Burgundy - Chardonnay. A lieu-dit well situated next to Meursault’s third best vineyard, Premier Cru Les Charmes. Heavier clay soils mix with limestone to create wine that combines the weight of Meursault with the minerality and delicacy of Puligny. 20% new oak with the rest aged in a combination of 228 and 400 litre casks. The wine carries a little more weight but still maintains the same Puligny-like delicate lift. Defined nuances of pickled lemon and salinity brighten the denser golden pear and other orchard fruits. Palate is more dense, round and powerful but falls a touch shorter than the previous due to size and weight. Still very mineral.
