In 2016 this was the first vineyard to be harvested, which is very unusual. The Ballot-Millot Meursault Charmes has a richer nose than the Narvaux with a touch of apricot. It has a soft attack, very fresh tasting fruitand with a fine-grained texture. It has good presence and matter and finishes very long and on the mineral. (CW 9/11/17)

Known as the “Brad Pitt of Meursault” for reasons best known to his importer, Charles Ballot has made a range of delicious Meursaults in 2016. Maybe it’s just my general preference for this superb Premier Cru, but this is my favourite of his wines this year. It’s a bright, focused, well-rounded white with the stylish oak integration and precision that’s a feature of the domaine’s style. Drink 2020-28. 94 points
Very juicy and neat but far from fleshy. Chalky chewy finish. Drink 2023-29. 16.5 points
