2013 Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey Meursault 1er Cru "Charmes"
Allen Meadows - Burghound
*Sweet Spot Outstanding* A 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. Drink: 2021+
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 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. (NM)
Subtle, 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. (ST)
In the middle of Lafon’s parcel, under Perrières. Quite high. About 20 years ago Lafon used to make wine from it. Savoury and refined. Very broad and flattering. Chewy finish and with real structure. Lip smacking. 18/20 points. (JR)
