This isn't a Grand Cru, but Les Charmes can match their intensity with its profile of candied lemon, almonds, white flowers.

100% Chardonnay which spends 12-15 months in French oak, 60% of which is new oak. Les Charmes 1er Cru in Meursault is fortunate to straddle two types of terroir: one is clay based and the other is a soil that is close to the limestone bedrock. What is born from this unique collaboration? A wine so chiseled and smooth, we were tempted to pop a waistcoat on it and call it Cillian Murphy.

Burgundian legends; the Bichot family settled in the region in 1350. The wine business was founded in 1831 by Bernard Bichot, and his son, Hippolyte Bichot, bought the first vines. Clearly deciding that they weren’t going to beat “Hippolyte Bichot” as a name, the next three generations were named Albert Bichot. Now sixth-generation scion Alberic Bichot runs the place with respect for traditions and an eye to the future. He compares himself to the "conductor of an orchestra, proud to bring people and their talents together.”
