En Primeur | Domaine Jean-Philippe Fichet 2019

Jean-Philippe was just 20 when his father handed down the family’s sharecropping arrangements in the village of Meursault. In the intervening 40 years Jean-Philippe has lost none of his enthusiasm nor his thirst for knowledge. As a young winemaker he espoused the then fashion for new oak and frequent bâtonnage in cask, making full and hedonistic wines. Today the estate’s style is more reflective. Jean-Philippe believes the origins of great wine are first and foremost in the vineyard. His motto is to respect the soil and the vine, treating only when necessary. Earlier picking dates deliver a stunning mineral freshness. In the winery he operates a much gentler handling process than in his youth. Larger casks and less new oak mean the wines possess superb fruit content.

Our cellar visit with Jean-Philippe is always one of the highlights of the tasting trip and was greatly missed this year. One of the most authoritative members of the commune, he is always so insightful and full of profound wisdom. It is testament to his skills that his 2019s left everyone who tasted them buzzing. They are such a fabulous representation of both appellation and vintage. They have the Meursault richness, a touch of reserve but most importantly the fabulous zip of freshness which is 2019’s calling card.
