There's a richness and weight of a little oak age on the front end of this luminously golden wine. But its character is really shaped by the bright acidity - lemons, green melon, hazelnuts, and minerals - that give it freshness.
Situated just south of Volnay and Pommard in the Cote de Beaune, Meursault is the most extensive southerly white wine commune of the Cote-d’Or. The perfect south-easterly exposure and the stony, marl soil contribute greatly to the remarkable finesse of which the wines of Meursault are capable. Typical Meursault tend to be very full, mellow wines and mature somewhat sooner than the wines from the neighbouring communes of Puligny and Chassagne.
