Grape: Manually harvested 100% Chardonnay from 30 year old vines in four separate plots. Indigenous yeasts used for alcoholic ferment. Full malolactic fermentation with 15 months ageing on lees in oak barrels.
Smoke, slate, super-ripe apricots and butter are some of the many notes that are woven together in the 2010 Meursault Charmes. A generous, large-scaled wine, the Charmes flows with tons of textural richness and body all the way through to the seamless finish. The Charmes is easily one of the more intense wines in the lineup. Anticipated maturity: 2013+.
Thierry Matrot told me he thinks 2010 is one of the greatest vintages of the last 30 years. Yields came in around 20-25 hectoliters per hectare, which is tiny by any measure. Batonnage gives the Matrot wines quite a bit of textural richness when they are young, along with the impression they are built for serious aging, but in my experience the wines need to be enjoyed within a few years after release.
