Meursault 2013

Region: France / Burgundy / Côte de Beaune Villages
Grapes: 100% Chardonnay

The vineyards are chalk and white marl and are spread over gentle slopes 230-360 meters above sea level; their desirable eastern orientation allows maximum sunlight. The grapes are handpicked and sorted, then gently pressed and fermented in oak barrels without artificial temperature control. Partial or no malolactic fermentation is permitted based on the vintage. The wine is aged on the lees for 16 months in French oak barrels, 33% new, and 12 months in bottle before release.

harvest note

2013 was a challenging season. It began with very wet and cold conditions in the region delaying flowering. This led to a disruption in quantity of the grapes, as millerandage affected the bunches. Summer ended with warm weather and fine growing conditions. Unfortunately, due to inconsistent ripening, the harvest was drawn out for an extended period of time. This was challenging for pickers as the weather turned cold quickly. Luckily, Côte de Beaune was able to produce small but high quality whites.

tasting note

Ripe, full-fruited aromas and flavors include brioche and hazelnut. A medium body and supple texture carry into a persistent finish.

food pairing

Pairs with fish, shellfish, poultry and cheeses.
