2013 Morey-Blanc Mersault 1er Cru Charmes

From the Producers:

  • Grape variety : Chardonnay
  • Vintages : Since 1991
Domaine Pierre MOREY, following Auguste MOREY, worked on a Meursault Charmes vineyard (1.71 ha) for 20 years, until 1990.
Meursault Charmes is the biggest Meursault premier cru appellation : 31 hectares on a very gentle slope.
You will be seduced by its unbelievable charm (as indicated by his name !), but don’t forget that Charmes is also very powerful and ages really well.
91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate say, "The 2013 Meursault 1er Cru Les Charmes has an exotic peach and apricot-scented bouquet, later yellow plum and candied orange peel. The palate is rounded in the mouth with plenty of fruit concentration, the finish quite weighty, but nicely counterpoised by the acidity. This is one Meursault where I think stopping the malo early really benefited the wine. It should be drinking beautifully once in bottle. (NM) "(12/2014)
