Production Area
Country: France

Appellation: Meursault-Charmes 1er Cru Contrôlée

Meursault lies in the southern part of the Côte de Beaune, where an eastern exposure ensures maximum sunlight during the days. Soils here are predominantly white marl limestone. The Guyon Les Charmes Dessus is the upper part of the Les Charmes 1er Cru, high on the slopes just below 1er Cru Perrieres.

Grapes are hand-harvested and then carried in small boxes to the cellars, where they are sorted. Fermentation is carried out in oak casks at between 18°-20°C. Lees are stirred twice a week. Wine is then aged for 15 months in French oak barrels, 30% of which are new.

Color
A lovely golden green color.

Bouquet
Aromas of honey.

Taste
Very rich in the mouth, with hints of almond. Excellent depth, focus and precision
