Very typical from Meursault, a little tense, with a beautiful acidity. Not very sensitive to over maturity. It's a sappy wine and energise with a good balance.
Can be aged.
Ideal for an unostentatious Meursault lover.

Grapes

Chardonnay : 100 %

Pale lemon. Perhaps the most complete wine of the three Meursault lieux-dits tasted. It has the best balance, in white fruit, not the overt weight of Vireuils, but much more refinement. Powerful, but racy energy to finish.
