Louis Jadot Meursault 1er Cru Charmes 2016

Maison Louis Jadot produces a rich full-bodied Meursault-Charmes, traditionally vinified in oak to yield a well structured cuvée which balances firmness with ripe flavours. This Meursault Charmes is a quintessential wine with full, ripe fruit flavours, a fat, velvety texture and a bouquet redolent of peaches and apricots. The strength and suppleness of Meursault makes these wines ideal partners for food which is both rich and spicy, hot or cold; foie gras, fish in a cream sauce, shellfish in sauce, poultry with cream, strong cheeses. It can be cellared for 8 to 15 years in good conditions of temperature and humidity.

The fermentation takes place in oak barrels, after which the wine is aged in barrel for 15-18 months before being bottled. It can be cellared for 8 to 15 years in good conditions.

Meursault is the centre of the four communes (Meursault, Blagny, Chassagne and Puligny) and make up that part of the Côte de Beaune known as the 'Cote de Blancs', known for the quality and predominance of its white wines. The soils of Les Charmes, due to their lower position on the slope, are richer and heavier than the thin stony soils of Les Perrières or Genevrières and yield the most typical Meursault 1er cru. Although less racy and elegant than Les Perrieres or Genevrières, Charmes is above all a seductive, approachable wine; round lush and ample on the palate, with slightly less acidity than the former, and tends to develop a distinct hazelnut character with bottle age.

After a complicated start to the growing season with a number of frost episodes, a dry summer with some much needed rainfall in September meant grapes were harvested at a good level of ripeness from 27 September.

The fermentation takes place in oak barrels, after which the wine is aged in barrel for 15-18 months before being bottled. It can be cellared for 8 to 15 years in good conditions.
