Justerini & Brooks Tasting note

Château de Meursault, Bourgogne, Blanc, Terroir d'Exception, 2018

Gentle and quiet at first, gradually revealing some elegant, easy, fluid white and citrus fruit character anchored by a gripping mineral backbone. Stylish Bourgogne. This hails from a unique plot of 40-year-old vines between Albert Grivault's Clos des Perrières and Perrières itself. A premier cru site if ever you saw one but for the fact that it was a quarry up until 1977, which has meant that it was never classed as such. Aged in 30% new oak.

Château de Meursault

Château de Meursault

A wonderful, historic Domaine that has the Côte de Beaune’s most impressive vaulted cellars. Château de Meursault has for a long time been on the tourist trail and is the impressive venue for the famous Paulee de Meursault in November. Their vineyard holdings have always been the envy of the Côte but a reliance on passing tourist trade, lack of know-how and investment meant that traditionally the wines failed to live up to their promise. However the Château’s fortunes changed in 2012 when it was bought by Olivier Halley with the intention to make it one of the most hallowed estates in Burgundy, money no object. The Château is now firmly on the Burgundy lover’s map. In 2012 Olivier brought in Stephane Follin-Arbelet to run the estate, brother of Frank Follin-Arbelet and former director of Bouchard, Stephane knows a thing or two about what it means to make top quality Burgundy and what it takes to manage a large estate. Conversion to organics, planting cover crops, increasing the size of picking teams (up to 200 people to shorten the harvest period) and lowering yields are just some of the many effective innovations he has brought in. The winemaking is respectful to terroir, new oak ranges from 25-40% and the wines are aged for 15-18 months in the enormous, cool, vaulted cellars underneath the Château. A new star of Burgundy is born. Along with sister estate, Château de Marsannay, this will soon be one of the biggest certified organic estates in the Côte d'Or.
