Meursault 2009

Meursault 2009

Situated just south of Volnay and Pommard in the Côte de Beaune, Meursault is the most extensive northerly white wine commune of the Côte-d’Or. The perfect south-easterly exposure and the stony, marl soil contribute greatly to the remarkable finesse of which the wines of Meursault are capable.

Typical Meursaults tend to be very full, mellow wines and mature somewhat sooner than the wines from the neighbouring communes of Puligny and Chassagne. The wine is full in the mouth and well-structured showing exotic fruitiness and a nutty, spicy character. It can be drunk when young but patience is amply repaid.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Ripe and yet bright and vibrant, this Chablis overflows with lemons and limes and boasts a creamy texture. The minerality is pronounced on both the nose and the palate.
Ratings
Allen Meadows, Burghound: 88pts. (10% new wood with 40% raised in stainless). A classic Meursault nose of hazelnut, white peach and soft pear aromas gives way to fresh, vibrant and energetic middle weight flavors that culminate in a lingering if mildly bitter finish. My note assumes that the bitterness will quickly dissipate as I suspect that it’s sulfur-related. 88/2014+
