Description

A Village level lieu dit Meursault Les Clous is a famous vineyard exploited by some top producers. This example from Bouchard offers a more modern style of Meursault with mineral, saline, and floral notes. The years in bottle have tamed some of the acid and built some texture.

Bouchard are owned by the Henriot empire and are encouraged and expected to achieve quality from top to bottom. They own parcels in some of the great estate vineyard in Burgundy and despite their size, they never fail to make a wine of charm and depth. These are not to be missed!

Burgundy

The classic part of Burgundy known as the Cote D’Or (the slope of gold) is essentially one vineyard that is 60km long and maybe 5km at its widest. From this limestone ridge some of the most complex, long-lived and aromatic wines are produced from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The Cistercian monks who owned the land codified the entire region and so each small plot has a name.

Meursault

Traditionally the sturdy, rich, oaky, hazelnutty neighbour of Puligny and Chassagne. A lighter, modern style is evolving, both are equally delicious and charming.

Chardonnay

The grape that you can plant anywhere, in any climate and do anything to and it will still taste like an OK wine. When people hit the sweet spot of site, climate, cropping and winemaking, Chardonnay becomes a magical wine that will age gracefully but charm you at any age. Chardonnays can range from cool climate lean and citrusy to warmer climate tropical and overt. Oak and lees can add flavouring as can malolactic fermentation.
