Burghound | Rating: 94A background whiff of SO2 is barely noticeable and does not compromise the attractiveness of the layered and intensely floral nose of almond, white peach, pear and softly spice-infused aromas. There is good volume and richness to the appealingly crisp, stony and energetic medium-bodied flavors that possess a clean, focused and beautifully textured finish.Author: Allen Meadows
Rating: 93The 2013 Meursault 1er Cru Les Charmes has an exotic peach and apricot-scented bouquet, later yellow plum and candied orange peel. The palate is rounded in the mouth with plenty of fruit concentration, the finish quite weighty, but nicely counterpoised by the acidity. This is one Meursault where I think stopping the malo early really benefited the wine. It should be drinking beautifully once in bottle.Author: Neal Martin
Wine Advocate | Rating: 92Subtle, classic Charmes aromas of pear, peach, hazelnut and vanilla lifted by a floral topnote. Juicy acidity and a note of fresh herbs cut the wine's creamy, peachy sweetness. More pliant and generous than the Baudines but nicely energized by a note of gingery spice.
The latest in a long line of Burgundy producers, Pierre Yves Colin-Morey is intimately familiar with the vineyards and growers of the region. These relationships allow him to select the absolute best crop portions from his preferred sites each year. Colin-Morey is strict about quality and his standards are very high; if he feels that a particular wine, once fermented, is not of an acceptable caliber, he will sell it off in bulk rather than see it through bottling. The wines see no batonnage at all during their 15 -18 month elevage period, and they are coveted by enthusiasts and collectors around the world.
