RATINGS

89-91The Wine Advocate

...notes of ripe citrus fruit, white flowers, beeswax and a subtle framing of wood, followed by a medium to full-bodied, satiny palate that's pure, precise but giving.

89-92Vinous / IWC

...scents of lemon, lime and white peach lifted by exhilarating notes of white pepper and flowers. Ripe and sweet but penetrating too, with its concentrated flavors of apple and pear enlivened by saline minerality. This very well-balanced village wine finishes tactile and persistent.

17Jancis Robinson

...hint of oak on the nose here. A touch toasty but also lightly, smokily reductive. Light note of struck match but it doesn't overwhelm the fruit. Creamy and mealy on the palate to round out the intense, pure citrus fruit. Wonderful clarity of purpose balanced by a softer texture.

REGION

France, Burgundy, Côte d'Or, Côte de Beaune, Meursault

Meursault is one of the trio of famous Chardonnay producing appellations in the Côte d’Or. Although both red and white wines are allowed to be produced in the Meursault appellation, 98% of Meursault is Chardonnay. With a total of 2,500 acres of vineyards, there are no Grands Crus but 325 acres of Premiers Crus, which are divided into 13 main vineyards. As wine writers have often noted, Meursault’s fame is based on its Premiers Crus, including the prestigious Les Perrières, Les Genevrières and Les Charmes. Because the water table is low in Meursault, many producers have cellars here, including Comte Lafon and Jean-Francois Coche-Dury. Robert M. Parker Jr. wrote “the Premiers Crus, as well as the finest Villages Meursaults from the top vineyards, are among the easiest drinking white burgundies in the world. Why? High-quality Meursault is opulent, almost unctuous, with a fatness and a juicy, succulent, buttery, hazelnut and apple, peach-like fruitiness that often roars from the glass.”

TYPE

White Wine, Chardonnay

This white variety originated in Burgundy, but is now grown around the world. Its flexibility to thrive in many regions translates to wide flavor profile in the market. Chardonnay is commonly used in making Champagne and sparkling wines.
