Meursault-Charmes 1er Cru 2008, Patrick Javillier
Earlier on this year I hosted a tasting of 6 Chassagnes with two bottles from the 2007, 2008 and 2009 vintages. At the end of the tasting everyone clamoured for the 2008s. They really are appealing already. This Meursault-Charmes 2008 is soft, seductive, there is dive-in-deep yellow stone fruit. More freshness from a flavour of cherry juice. This chardonnay is rich, rounded, very long and yet still has superb balance. Really needs to be matured for another 4 years to reveal all of its glory!
