Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
BH 94
Burghound.com
A beautifully layered nose combines notes of pear and white peach with those of acacia blossom, citrus and discreet wood influence. There is excellent density and intensity to the powerful, concentrated and slightly more complex middle weight flavors and this complexity continues onto the explosively long and mouth coating finish. Like the Genevrières this beauty should repay up to decade of bottle age.
Barrel Sample: 92-94

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2015 Meurault 1er Cru Les Charmes was picked on 30 August, the same day as the Meursault Désirée and Goutte d'Or. It displayed a focused bouquet: smoke, walnut and gun flint that are all precise and almost as intense as the Les Perrières. The palate displayed a light reduction à la Montrachet. It is underpinned by a fine acidic line, quite angular at this stage albeit with good weight. It leads to a confident finish offering dried honey, walnut and crustacea towards the persistent finish. Bon vin!

Known to offer a magical balance of smoothness and freshness, Meursault's quality is hard to rival. The village lies in the middle of Côte de Beaune, just south of Volnay. Meursault is said to mean “mouse’s jump” because in the past the plots producing Pinot noir and those producing Chardonnay were no more than a mouse’s jump from one another. Today the village is almost exclusively Chardonnay. A tiny bit of Pinot noir is produced here with the best coming from Les Santenots on its northern side near Volnay.

While there are no Grands Crus, Meursault’s numerous acclaimed Premiers Crus can compete with any other top-notch white Burgundy. Some to know are Les Perrières, Les Genevrières, Les Charmes, Le Poruzot, Les Bouchères and Les Gouttes d’Or.

Meursault produces outstanding village level wines as well. In general great Premiers Crus and even village level Meursault (Chardonnay) have enticing aromas of lime peel, tropical fruit, crushed rocks, spice and hazelnut. On the palate there is a wonderful balance of brightness and a seductive length with flavors of white peach, pineapple and citrus.

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
