Meursault 2014

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

Meursault lies at the center of the Côte des Blancs, a region in the Côte de Beaune named for the quality and predominance of its white wines. The vineyards are chalk and white marl and are spread over gentle slopes between 230 and 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. A proportion of the wine is aged in barrels before bottling.

harvest note

2014 was a year for excellent, balanced whites as the season began and ended strongly. The dry, warm weather was instrumental in advancing the development of the vines. Due to this, flowering began early and conditions in the area were dry until the end of June. On June 28th, hailstorms moved throughout the region, reducing yields in Meursault, Volnay, Pommard, and Beaune. In September, fine weather returned and the harvest was able to begin on the 12th. Despite the hailstorm, quantities were higher than they had been for the past few years.

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.
