Description

"This parcel was planted in three different stages, the oldest by Auguste Morey, the next by Pierre Morey and the third by Dominique Lafon. Very well situated in the upper part of 'Les Charmes', Lafon owns the last vines at the south of the appellation next to 'Puligny Combettes'. It faces due east, has relatively deep clay and limestone soils (argilo-calcaire) with very crumbly rock deep down. The grapes ripen well and the wines are always powerful though never tending heavy.""Very open and easy and yet with great structure. Fabulous combo of fruit and smoke and no mirrors!"" Jancis Robinson MW""The 2011 Meursault 1er Cru Charmes is adorned with an elegant, vibrant bouquet with lime flower, citrus peel and quince that gains intensity in the glass. The palate is well-balanced with light honeyed notes furnishing the entry before it crescendos toward the finish that offers quince, grapefruit and passion fruit all struck with fine acidity and a cheeky hint of white chocolate just appearing on the aftertaste. There is a lot to take in here - a mercurial, thought-provoking Meursault. Drink 2015-2027.""Neal Martin, eRobertParker.com"
