Domain Wines / Meursault 1er Cru "Les Charmes"

A great lover of Burgundy, Jean-Luc AEGERTER acquired a small wine house in Nuits-Saint-Georges in 1988, with the ambition of participating in the revelation of the great terroirs of Burgundy.
In 1994, he bought the first vines of the Domaine, 1,17ha in one piece on the climat "Les Plateaux" in Nuits-Saint-Georges.
Through hard work, determination and passion, Jean-Luc and his son Paul, have built a Domain anchored in the mythical lands of Burgundy and radiating throughout the world.
Today, Paul AEGERTER is the sole manager of the family estate, and he vinifies and raises nearly 50 hectares of which 14 hectares are owned, covering most of the Burgundian appellations.

    A dress in gold-green or polished bronze, depending on the age, clear and luminous.
    The nose evokes roasted almonds and hazelnuts with vegetal, floral and mineral (flint) notes. Butter, honey and citrus fruits also find their full expression in this fine wine.
    On the palate, a rich and full-bodied wine with a nutty flavor. This Meursault offers a good balance between creaminess and freshness. Long and structured, it needs to be matured.
