In a nutshell:
An opulent Côte de Beaune white Burgundy with a good depth of fruit.
The large appellation of Meursault, south of Beaune, is in the heart of Chardonnay's spiritual home and the osurce of many classic white Burgundies such as this. Philippe Chavy's domaine is made up of several small vineyards and this cuvée is the product of 4 of them which together total a mere one hectare. The youngest vines are over 50 years old and some were planted pre-WWII. The wine itself is classic Meursault, with citrus and almond aromas that blend well with the soft minerality and fruit intesity to give a rich and ripe feel in the mouth. There's also a welcoming touch of spice which just adds to the complexity on the lingering finish.
When to drink:
A well textured and very rewarding example of Burgundian Chardonnay which has now reached its ideal drinking window.
