    Winemaker Notes

    This Meursault comes from several parcels of vines in the prestigious lieu dits Le Tesson, Les Rougeots and Les Chevalières, all located above the village. The vines, which average 50 years of age, are planted on a steep slope with a stony, limestone-clay soil.

    The flavor and texture are essential Meursault, presenting an interplay of pure and lively citrus fruit, nutty richness, mineral complexity and invigorating, vivid length.

    Henri Clerc, France
    The origins of the Clerc estate, originally located on the main square in Puligny-Montrachet, date back to the 16th century. Upon his retirement in 2002, Bernard Clerc placed Vincent Girardin in charge of his vineyards and winemaking. The Clerc estate of 11 hectares of vineyards is centered in Puligny-Montrachet, and includes 3 Grands Crus. The vineyards are farmed organically and biodynamically. No herbicides or insecticides are used, and the soils are regularly plowed. The vines are trained high to enhance photosynthesis. The traditional Clerc label has been modernized and is now as elegant and sophisticated as the wines themselves

    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.
