Meursault 1er Cru Goutte d'Or 2013

Meursault 1er Cru Goutte d'Or 2013

Situated just south of Volnay and Pommard in the Côte de Beaune, Meursault is the most extensive southerly white wine commune of the Côte-d'Or. Meursault « Goutte d'Or » is the first Premier Cru found when leaving the village in the direction of Puligny-Montrachet. The parcel of vines was given this name ('drop of gold') because of the quantity of flint in the soil. These flints have both the shape and colour of 'drops of gold'. Entirely like the drops of wine which this land produces! The wine itself is all one would expect it to be with a powerful nose and rich palate. The wine prefered by Thomas Jefferson.

Tasting Notes
The 2008 Meursault 1er Cru Poruzots is a fine and powerful wine. On the bouquet, it reveals yellow fruit aromas, along with hazelnut and fresh buttery notes. A straightforward, full and very well-balanced wine with great length on the palate.
