Description

Charles Ballot took the helm of his family’s already respected Domaine and began to make his mark by moving to more natural farming methods, reducing yields, buying a triage table, and updating the press.

Today, the estate comprises 10 hectares of vineyards, seven of which are in Meursault proper. The holdings are reputable and the relative vine age is old. Charles’s wines tend toward the so-called “Roulot-school” of Meursault, more tensile and racy, as opposed to the fatter, honeyed, and nutty style that dominated the landscape 20-30 years ago. "Les Criots" and "Les Crotots" are on vibrant soil and produce generous, slightly buttery, and fat wines.

Review

A whiff of the exotic is present in the spice aromas of lychee, orange peel, and soft wood nuances. Once again there is fine density to the succulent and caressing flavours that conclude in a saliva-inducing finale that is noticeably warm. I would suggest serving this moderately stony effort cooler than normal.
