Arnaud Ente's 2006 Meursault Les Petits Charrons presents itself as a pale, green-tinged yellow wine, enchanting with musky white flowers and ripe peach aromas. The palate experience is truly remarkable, unfolding with a rich and creamy texture that is perfectly balanced by the delightful interplay of ripe acidity, reminiscent of the platonic peach's ideal sugar/acid equilibrium. Impressively concentrated and long, the wine concludes with a finish that saturates the palate with persistent fruit flavors. Sourced notably from old, low-yielding vines, the wine's exceptional quality is attributed to its low yields. This understated yet striking wine showcases cool herbal notes, white peach, and citrus characteristics, accompanied by intriguing hints of mushroom stock and wet stone. The subtly oily texture adds complexity, creating an overall impression that is sleek and fleet-footed.

"A portion of old, low yielding vines and very low yields appear to me what makes it reasonable that Ente’s 2006 Meursault Les Petits Charrons – a wine of village ranking – be served after his Gouttes d’Or premier cru. Once again, we have an understated (yet striking) wine, featuring “cool” herbal, white peach, and citrus characteristics, in this instanced with intriguing hints of mushroom stock, wet stone, and a savory, saline, umami-rich note that – when allied to the citrus – makes for a positively Pavlovian finish. The texture here is subtly oily yet the overall impression is sleek and fleet-footed."

"Pure aromas of peach, citrus peel and acacia flower. Supple and sweet but with ripe, penetrating acidity giving this fruit bomb lovely inner-mouth perfume. There's an almost creamy quality to the ripe peachy flavor. Finishes long and open. This is awfully easy to drink right now."
