Sexy aromas of nectarine, lime lift and lees, plus a hint of tropical fruits. Ripe, fruit-driven wine with good energy and spine to its yellow peach and spice flavors.

...very Meursault in character with its aromatic profile of hazelnut, white orchard fruit and acacia blossom scents. The rich, generously proportioned and relatively full-bodied flavors are delicious if not super-complex...

Broad and reasonably rich. Good solid Meursault. Splitting the difference between the rich and austere styles of wine from this appellation.


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.”


White Wine, Chardonnay, AOC (AC)

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.
