Aromas and flavors of ripe peach, lemon and smoky minerality, plus an element of vanillin oak. A wonderfully broad, sweet, seamless 2015 with surprising lift and no impression of undue weight. Not quite as smooth as the Genevrières but more explosive in the middle palate. Finishes wonderfully fresh and long, with piquant spicy lift. Should be outstanding. -Stephen Tanzer

(92-94) A beautifully layered nose combines notes of pear and white peach with those of acacia blossom, citrus and discreet wood influence. There is excellent density and intensity to the powerful, concentrated and slightly more complex middle weight flavors and this complexity continues onto the explosively long and mouth coating finish. Like the Genevrières this beauty should repay up to decade of bottle age.

For me, the Charmes is the king of the Lafon premier crus this year, soaring from the glass with a stunning bouquet of pear, mirabelle plum, white peach, hazlenut and crème pâtissière. On the palate the wine is deep and firm at the core, with glossy textural amplitude and vibrancy through the penetrating finish. One really feels the old-vine intensity here.

(92-94) The 2015 Meurault 1er Cru Les Charmes was picked on 30 August, the same day as the Meursault Désirée and Goutte d'Or. It displayed a focused bouquet: smoke, walnut and gun flint that are all precise and almost as intense as the Les Perrières. The palate displayed a light reduction à la Montrachet. It is underpinned by a fine acidic line, quite angular at this stage albeit with good weight. It leads to a confident finish offering dried honey, walnut and crustacea towards the persistent finish. Bon vin! -Neal Martin

(93+) The 2015 Comtes Lafon Charmes is superb, offering up depth, purity and early sex appeal. The bouquet is a classic blend of apple, a touch of fresh coconut, pear, chalky minerality, spring flowers, almond and vanilla. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and vibrant, with a great core of very pure fruit, impressive soil signature, bright acids and lovely cut and grip on the long, complex and very accessible finish. This wine has the balance to age very nicely, but given how good it will taste out of the blocks, good luck trying to keep your hands off of this wine in its youth! (Drink between 2016-2035)
