Tasting notes for the Meursault "Les Petits Charrons" 2011 - Arnaud Ente (Magnum)

  • EYE: This Meursault has an intense and bright golden yellow color. Its hue reflects its maturity and evolution.
  • NOSE: The wine exudes complex and expressive aromas. You can find notes of white-fleshed fruits such as apple and pear, along with hints of citrus, especially lemon. Delicate touches of roasted hazelnuts and fresh butter blend harmoniously with floral and mineral notes, adding depth to the overall bouquet.
  • MOUTH: Elegant and well-balanced. Its texture is creamy and luscious, providing a sensation of roundness and fullness. Ripe stone fruit flavors, such as peach and apricot, harmonize beautifully with hints of vanilla and toasted bread. A subtle mineral character brings freshness and liveliness, while the finish is persistent, leaving a pleasant impression of fresh fruits in the mouth.

 

In short: Arnaud Ente's Meursault "Les Petits Charrons" 2011 is a wine of great finesse and impressive complexity. Its golden robe captivates the eye, while its expressive nose reveals the full aromatic richness of Chardonnay. On the palate, its creamy texture and fruity flavors bring immense satisfaction. This wine pairs perfectly with seafood dishes such as grilled langoustines or sauced turbot. It also complements soft cheeses. With its aging potential and magnum bottle, it can be stored for a few more years to develop further complexity. An ideal choice for fellow Burgundy white wine enthusiasts.

An artist of the vineyard in Meursault

 

Elected "Man of the Year" by the Bettane & Desseauve wine guide in 2012, Arnaud Ente still deserves the title. According to critic Michel Bettane, his white wines are "the most advanced [...] in the entire world when it comes to Chardonnay." The winemaker, who was also nicknamed the Rising Star of Meursault for a few years, is now considered to be one of the greatest artists of the vineyard in the Côte de Beaune.

With the help of his wife Marie-Odile, his son Pierre, and his two employees, Arnaud Ente takes care of his 4.5 hectares of vineyard the way he would his garden. Although, you need to understand that the man is a true perfectionist (and an inspiration to his brother Benoît). He strives for balance, in all things. Arnaud Ente not only seeks to produce the purest wines possible, he is also constantly trying to find a fragile equilibrium between tension and texture. Acidity and volume.

The concept of precision is very close to his heart. Everything is adjusted and calibrated round the clock... from picking the grapes to pruning the vines. Furthermore, respecting the Burgundy terroir is a real duty for him. Which explains why the yields are extremely low. Of course, Arnaud Ente only uses organic methods in his vineyard (he is a proud recipient of the French "Agriculture Biologique" certification).
