...touches of beeswax and honeysuckle, needing a little coaxing from the glass. The palate is well balanced with fine acidity, taut and fresh, just the right amount of bitterness with stem ginger towards the spicy finish. Lovely.


Michel Bouzereau & Fils

Michel Bouzereau et Fils in Meursault has been in the Bouzereau family for seven generations. Michel ran the estate until the mid-1990s, when his son Jean-Baptiste joined the family venture full-time. Today Jean-Baptiste is in charge and the estate has grown to 27 acres with parcels in Meursault, Puligny-Montrachet, Pommard, Volnay and Beaune. Most of the wines are Premier Cru and 85% are white. Grapes are harvested by hand.


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

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.
