Born in Meursault’s smallest Premier Cru lieu-dit, this Chardonnay packs lip-smacking aromas in an opulent body with strong minerality. And 2005 was a magnificent vintage! Drink now, or wait a few more years if you can.

  • Wonderfully toasty on the nose but also with fruit notes—pineapple and lush, grapey scents—as well as a nutty/buttery element. This wine says “opulent” before you touch your lips to the glass. On the palate, still young and vibrant and with real presence. A direct expression of clean, ripe fruit but overlaid with herbal notes and something fresh and grassy. The intensity of the fruit is balanced by equally up-front acidity that keeps the wine lively despite the intensity of the fruit flavors. Drinkable now, but still seems youthful and likely to improve further.

    Food pairing: Lobster; crab; fish grilled or meunière; richly sauced scallops
