About

91-93

"Very ripe aromas and flavors of lemon oil, ripe fresh peach, crushed stone and vanilla. Wonderfully fruity, deep wine with real energy and concentration, with its silky texture enlivened by solid acidity (4.17 grams per liter, according to Fichet). Really dusts the teeth and tongue on the long finish. An essence of Chardonnay on calcaire, with terrific old-vines intensity, creaminess and lift--not to mention balance."

Product Description:

"Sourced exclusively from a small plot of 80 year old vines, located in continuation of the Meursault 1er cru Les Charmes, by the side of the path to Puligny-Montrachet. It must be noted that this 80-year-old plot provides natural concentration to the grapes. Located at the bottom of slopes, in fairly rich soil, with a limestone subsoil that gives character to the wine.

Fichet has flown largely under the world’s radar. He began as a grower in 1981 and by 2000, he had created an extraordinary new domaine, brimming with exceptional vineyard sites. Fichet has carried the revolutionary work and success of past iconic producers to another level—studying every square inch of earth and stone in his domaine, to make Meursault’s purest set of single-climat wines." - Importer
