Meursault 2010


Front Label

Back Label

We produced this Meursault from Chardonnay vines with an average age of nearly 40 years, spread between several excellent sites around the fabled village of Meursault and planted in rocky limestone and marl soils. The growing season and harvest in 2010 were superb for Chardonnay with wonderful ripeness of fruit, purity and minerality. Bottled after 14 months in barrel, this is a wine of real fruit character, richness and structure.

Tasting Notes

Bright pale straw in colour with hints of green and a water white rim. Beautifully pure nose of pear, lime and grapefruit with mineral, brioche, icing sugar, white peach and hazelnut notes.
 
On the palate the wine is clean, fresh, pure and focused, with a terrific soft acidic profile and lovely texture. There are stone and mineral elements, and some nicely rounded notes of lemon and lime, along with apple, cream, vanilla and traces of ginger. The finish is long and pure with hints of nectarine, spice, flint and green apple.
