All the nutty richness, the bold scale and creaminess we associate with Meursault from this 1er Cru site, but married to lovely apple-pear freshness that animates the generous body through the long, compact, yet very clean, mineral finish. From a 1.2-hectare parcel at the bottom of this site. Drink or hold.
The 2020 Meursault 1er Cru Charmes (Domaine Louis Jadot) exhibits aromas of popcorn, green apple, pear and orange oil. Medium to full-bodied, ample and fleshy, it's a rich, open-knit rendition of this site, derived from the holdings of the erstwhile Domaine Prieur-Brunet.
A slightly fuller yellow, plumper, some vanilla, offering the expected Charmes amplitude, rounded, with pear and peach notes, not over exotic but a full mouthful nonetheless. Tasted: November 2021
Bright lemon colour. White flowers, lemon oil and poached pear on the nose. Vibrant and lightly smoky. The palate is lively with citrus fruit and steely acidity, but there is intense fruit to match. There is a deeply umami, stony character throughout. Intense and superbly balanced, this is serious modern Meursault.
