Optn: 2019 White

  • Superb white Burgundy from a single village which enjoys the same conditions and 'terroir' as the most expensive white wines from this area, Corton Charlemagne.
  • A fine wine which cries out for fine food (and good company) and compliments rich, creamy sauces, cold meats and other antipasti.
  • The grapes for this Meursault are harvested by hand, then individually sorted and the best selected for the wine. This painstaking attention to detail is key to producing this great wine.
  • Chardonnay at its finest, this is a fine wine for drinking now or cellaring for up to 10 years.

Brief Description

Tasting Notes

The spectrum of flavours with this Meursault is huge. After a rich nose of lychees and grapefruit, the palate delivers soft, buttery tropical fruits with roasted hazelnuts present in the background. The finish lingers and leaves a fresh, clean minerally coating in the mouth with a hint of brioche and fresh white peach.

About

Based in Beaune, Bouchard Père & Fils was founded in 1731 by Michel Bouchard and is one of the oldest wine estates in Burgundy. Now also one of the largest vineyard owners in the Cote D’or, they enjoy superb 'terroirs' and the Les Clous is no exception.

Some of the vineyards classified as village appellations are situated on a marly ground, identical to terroir of Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru (only the topography and altitude are different). These vineyards are of such exceptional quality that the wine deserves to be vinified separately. This is the case for the terroir of Les Clous, with Bouchard Père et Fils owning 8.64 hectares here, which is almost half of the total area.

Ideal with...

Wines of this quality and pedigree cry out for fine food and should not be served too cold (between 12°C to 14°C). Try John Dory, pan fried with browned butter and capers. Rich, creamy pasta dishes with truffles and lighter game such as rabbit are also winners. Eggs Benedict also works well.
