The 2010 Les Charmes Dessus is lovely golden in color. Honeyed aromas on the nose segue into a rich and velvety texture on the palate.
Although tempting now, this wine can be cellared for another 10 years.

A discreet touch of wood sets off a ripe, fresh and completely classic Meursault nose of hazelnut, yellow orchard fruit and softly spiced pear aromas that give way to rich, full-bodied and opulent flavors that retain a fine sense of cut and plenty of energy on the agreeably dry, balanced and long finish. If this can add depth in bottle it should merit the top of my predicted range. A Sweet Spot Wine.

Domaine Guyon’s superb bottling of Charmes Dessus is stunning in 2010, soaring from the glass in a blaze of apple, passion fruit, chalky minerality, a touch of iodine, almonds, apple blossoms and vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, pure and very, very minerally in personality, with a great core, bright acids and outstanding length and grip on the laser-like and zesty finish. A beautiful bottle in the making.
