Louis Jadot Meursault Charmes 2018
|Region||France, Burgundy, Meursault|
With the acquisition of the Domaine Prieur-Brunet, Jadot became landholders in this premier cru, and it's from this purchase that the 2018 Meursault 1er Cru Charmes (Domaine Louis Jadot) derives. Revealing aromas of pear, peach, pastry cream and white flowers, it's medium to full-bodied and richly layered but lively, concluding with a nicely defined finish.
The 2018 Meursault Charmes 1er Cru, Jadot's second vintage from this vineyard, offers an intense bouquet of jasmine, dried honey and grilled walnut scents that seem well defined, if not quite as precise as some of the vineyard's other exponents. The palate is fresh and well defined on the entry, with a slightly honeyed texture, a faint tang of marmalade and quince and a lightly spiced, quite persistent finish that feels satisfying, even if not as tensile as the Meursault-Blagny by direct comparison. Fine.
