1er Cru Charmes

In Burgundy, this word refers to old common fields cultivated and let lie fallow or planted with hornbeams.

After a cold and dry start to the year, temperatures rose quickly at the end of March, triggering a rapid resumption of the growing cycle. A few morning frosts impacted part of the vineyard at the end of April but without major damage. The flowering period takes place in a few days at the beginning of June in superb weather. The summer is hot and sunny but delivers some welcome storm rain to help the plant enter the veraison stage. The harvest takes place at the beginning of September with ideal weather and impeccable health quality of the grapes.


The largest of all the 1er Crus classified terroirs of Meursault but also the archetype of the style of Meursault (rich, fat and powerful). Each step of the terroir gives elegance (Dessus), power (Milieu) and richness (Dessous). The soil is rich in clay and more sedimentary.
