RATINGS

90Wine Spectator

Sleek and restrained, this is rooted in the mineral camp, with support from citronella and hazelnut notes. Very discreet use of oak, with plenty of substance. Vibrant and long.

89-90The Wine Advocate

...boasts a gorgeous minerality. Medium-bodied, rich, ample, and suave, it is crammed with spicy pears and candied apples.

88-91Vinous / IWC

Aromas of wet stone and grapefruit skin. Dense and ripe but juicy, with a concentrated flavor of ripe, sweet grapefruit. Offers a lovely combination of richness and vivacity. Finishes supple, ripe, dry and quite long.

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.
