Meursault-Charmes 1er Cru 2007, Domaine Matrot
I greatly enjoy Meursault-Charmes and I have this lingering question in my mind. Is Meursault-Charmes really that different from the contiguous Puligny vineyards Les Referts and Les Combettes? The topsoil and exposition are very similar. This Meursault-Charmes from the 2007 vintage has baked orange, danish pastry and orange soufflé aromas. There is salinity not sucrosité on the palate. Soft fruits (white peach) and then a big, fresh finish with a long impact in the mouth (fruit) with less of a longueur. Will fill out into a blockbuster worthy of lobster thermidor or a platter of scallops in a rich sauce.
