93Wine Spectator

Sleek and intense, packed with apple, lime, butterscotch and mineral flavors, this white starts out expressive and doesn't quit. Balanced in a sleek way, with a long, complex finish.

90The Wine Advocate

...notes of waxy lemon rind, grapefruit pith, crisp green pear and dried white flowers. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, broad and satiny, with a textural attack, a pure and vibrant core of fruit, brisk acids and a precise finish.

16.5Jancis Robinson

Light, slightly tentative liquorice on the nose. Assertive front palate and really rather winning towards the end with some Meursault fat in evidence – even if overall slimline, needless to say! Excellent balance.


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

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.”


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.
