"In 2001, Charles Ballot took the helm of his family's already reputable domaine, and began to make his mark by working the soils, reducing yields, moving to more natural farming methods, buying a triage table and updatng the press. Today, the estate is comprised of 10ha of vineyards, 7 of which are in Meursault proper. The relative vine age is old: Perrières (40+), Genevrières (70+), Narvaux (45-60), etc. Charles' wines tend toward the so-called “Roulot-school” of Meursault, more tensile and racy, as opposed to the fatter, honeyed and nutty style that dominated the landscape 20-30 years ago." --importer Polaner Selections
from the importer: "les Choisilles is a cuvée, usually blended from old vines in the vineyards of Les Epinais, La Taille aux Loups and Clos au Renard. It’s named after a type of black flint called (you guessed it) choisille. Les Choisilles is a concentrated, focused dry wine that often needs several years to develop."
