As is often the case chez Boillot, this offers another step up in aromatic refinement with an almost delicate nose of acacia blossom, citrus, spice and wet stone. The highly energetic, linear and precise middle weight flavors possess gorgeous purity, indeed the word crystalline comes to mind, all wrapped in a long, markedly dry and explosive finish that displays a penetrating minerality. A flat out terrific Perrières of impeccable grace and harmony. Don't miss! Outstanding.
Meursault is the first great white wine area that one stumbles upon on leaving Beaune. Unlike other white dominated appellations in Burgundy, Meursault has no grand cru vineyards. It nonetheless has significant flair and power which make up for this deficiency. Indeed, if tasted blind some of these wines could even surpass other Burgundian grand crus. They are no fainting daisies. This may partially be due to Meursault's lower water table which enables the roots to delve deep in the soil picking up many trace minerals and which further stresses the vines. In addition, the cellars are more profound and cooler, enabling long fermentations, which increase complexity and longevity. Some interesting red wines are also made.
