Meursault-Charmes 1er Cru 2009, Bitouzet-Prieur

Another wine tasted at this Volnay domaine which offers a wide range of white and red Burgundy. Like the Puligny Les Levrons, this Meursault-Charmes is produced from a mix of old vines and younger vines (15 years old). Vinification of the two parcelles is conducted separately and they are blended at the end with about 30% new oak. This wine has a creamy texture, great structure and concentration, it is linear and serious. Recently bottled, the wines character is not yet fully resolved. Wait until 2013 to test but promises great things.
