2017 Joseph Drouhin Meursault 1er Cru Charmes$99.99
EFW -This is a pretty rare white Burgundy premier cru from Drouhin that typically doesn’t make it to the states. The 2017 vintage was a perfect harvest for Drouhin, and this Meursault Charmes has the early promise to be one for the best ever made here.
Neil Martin 93 Points! The 2017 Meursault Charmes 1er Cru had been bottled in August 2018. It has a well-defined bouquet, hints of white chocolate infusing the citrus fruit, and just a touch of honey giving away the warmth of the growing season. The palate is well-balanced with a discreet spicy opening that dovetails into a pure, quite tensile midpalate. There is a sense of fullness to this Meursault, which displays impressive amplitude toward the persistent finish. This comes highly recommended. (Drink between 2021-2035)
