Jasper Morris 92-95
Clear mid yellow. So much energy here too. An impressively racy quality with plenty of weight, very Charmes in character, strong fruit, and then a crunch of acidity. A little saline touch yet also some of the more exotic side.
Anticipated maturity: 2026-2033
The 2021 Meursault Les Charmes 1er Cru comes from a relatively large plot that I feel gives it an advantage this year. It has a fragrant bouquet with peach skin, grilled hazelnut and light orange rind scents that gain intensity in the glass. The palate is well balanced with fine weight on the entry. There’s plenty of extract here, and a pleasant pithiness comes through toward the finish. This should drink well over the next 20 years.
Anticipated maturity: 2025-2042
