Read moreThis is also on the restrained and understated side with its reticent but extremely pretty nose that is quite floral though there are background nuances of white orchard fruit and roasted nuts. There is excellent volume to the delicious, intense and sappy medium weight flavors that possess a refined mouth feel, indeed this is essentially a wine of finesse and harmony. Lovely and this linear effort delivers outstanding quality for a villages level wine.

Read moreThe 2010 Meursault Les Petits Charrons is all about energy and focus. Today, it is a bit clenched, yet there is an inner sweetness that is quite appealing. It will be interesting to see where this goes over the next few years. Stylistically, the Petits Charrons is more overt and obvious than most of the other wines in the lineup. There is plenty of weight, but a little less finesse than the best wines, although that is admittedly splitting hairs at this level. Ente farms two parcels here; one planted in 1958, the second in 1992. Anticipated maturity: 2012+.
This is a stunning set of wines from Arnaud Ente. The 2010s stand out for their transparency, expressiveness and purity. Ente began bringing in his wines on September 15. Yields were down about 30% on average. Ente gave the 2010s 12 months in oak followed by 7-8 months in steel. The wines were all bottled in April 2012. There are a handful of more famous domaines in Meursault, but few that can equal the level of the stunning wines found at this small, family run estate that captures the essence of the Burgundian vigneron spirit.

Very racy with all the sinews of a racehorse. Lots of chew and vigour. Chalky finish and very marked acidity. The finish is fine and expansive but this is not for those who seek easy pleasure.
