This Meursault 1er Cru Charmes-Dessus is rich, deep and mineral.

Domaine Arnaud Tessier is a rising star of Meursault’s producers. The Domaine is making refined and complex Chardonnays from the village’s best located vineyards. The Meursault 1er Cru “Les Charmes-Dessus” is located on the upper part of the climat*. Here, the wines are more complex, deep and mineral.

The nose offers apricot and hazelnut flavours with a hint of fresh butter, whilst the taste attacks with a beautiful minerality. It can be paired with seafood, lobster, white meat and cheeses. You can cellar it for eight to ten years or drink it in its youth. Decant it for 45 minutes before serving. 100% Chardonnay.

*Climat refers to a named plot of vineyard.

"This Meursault 1er Cru “Les Charmes-Dessus” is outstanding, showing the absolutely mind blowing complexity of that vineyard located just below the 1er cru “Les Perrières”. An all-time favourite to have in your cellar."

At Domaine Tessier, Catherine and Arnaud grow their vineyards organically. They ensure their vines are growing concentrated, ripe and healthy grapes. They employ only light ploughings, leave long branches on the vines and optimize the airflow through the canopy by removing leaves prior to harvest. After the hand harvest, grapes are pressed in a gentle pneumatic press. The juice is pumped into stainless steel vats and undergoes alcoholic fermentation. The process is as natural as possible and without introduction of external yeasts. The maturation is done in French oak barrels for twelve months – with only a few new oak barrels introduced – to preserve the beautiful fresh flavour of the wine and bring extra weight and complexity.
