Bourgogne Terroir d'Exception 2014

Bourgogne Terroir d'Exception 2014
If ever there were a white hot candidate for THE essential summer buy, Château de Meursault’s Bourgogne Terroir d’Exception 2014 must be it. Aside from this being one of the great white Burgundy vintages, the Terroir d’Exception is a rare piece of land and a unique story, a parcel of vines slap bang in the middle of Meursault’s finest vineyard but classified as Bourgogne. Only in the last few vintages has the great potential of this land been realised, so it’s still something of a secret. For 2012 heralded a new dawn at the historic but long underperforming Château de Meursault, when the ambitious Halley family bought it with the mission of making some of the Cote’s greatest wines.

The Terroir d’Exception has become one of the jewels in their crown. Exceptionally clear cut on the nose and with great impact on the palate this hails from a 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 at one time used as a quarry, and the minute soil is moved from a vineyard the parcel becomes declassified and cannot hold cru status. Crisp clean citrus and stone influenced flavours that really do speak of Perrières - this is a Bourgogne that truly rises above its status.

One of the greatest Bourgogne Blancs or one of the best value Meursault’s Perrières, whichever way you look at it this is a wine that will enrich many a gathering this summer.
