Tasting Notes

The 2018 Grands Charrons from Pierre Boisson is a beautiful example of the vintage. The bouquet is pure, precise and very refined, offering up scents of apple, passion fruit, hazelnut, lime blossoms, just a hint of iodine, chalky minerality, citrus zest and a touch of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is crisp, full-bodied and youthfully structured, with an excellent core, lovely mineral drive and cut, very good acids and a long, vibrant, focused and nascently complex finish. This is outstanding Meursault in the making. It is approachable today, but really deserves at least two or three years’ worth of bottle age to allow more of its secondary layers of complexity to emerge. Fine, fine juice. Drink between 2023-2045

John Gilman, View From the Cellar (91), January 2021

A lovely wine, the 2018 Meursault Les Grands Charrons opens in the glass with notes of pear, peach and apple blossom, framed by delicate hints of wheat toast and praline. Medium to full-bodied, elegantly textural and precise, it's built around lively acids and fine structuring dry extract. This may not be the most long-lived rendition of this cuvée, but it's among the most immediately charming.
