Xavier Monnot Meursault Premier Cru Les Charmes 2020


Sold Out

“The 2020 Meursault Les Charmes 1er Cru has a perfumed bouquet with citrus peel, chai tea, hints of white chocolate and a touch of stem ginger. There is ample weight on the palate, quite sapid with a fine line of acidity, just a hint of green olive towards the finish that fans out with confidence. This is a fine Meursault-Charmes. Drinking window: 2024-2034. 91-93 points

Xavier Monnot told me, “I love this vintage” when I visited him in Meursault. He picked from August 20 and finished on August 29. I really admired his 2020 Chassagne-Montrachet En Remilly with its cheeky touch of Japanese shiso leaf on the finish. The reds were de-stemmed and quite opulent in style; the Pommard Les Vignots and Volnay Clos des Chênes are well worth seeking out. These wines are bottled under natural cork.”
