Meursault 2018

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

This was a somewhat turbulent growing season. Lack of soil moisture and a poor fruit set diminished the harvest volumes.

tasting note

Full and expansive upon entry, with subtle blend of citrus, floral, and hazelnut essence, then a long elegant finish.

food pairing

Perfect with nearly all fish dishes, and equally at home with white meats such as chicken in various preparations.
