En Primeur | Meursault

Meursault is the first great white wine area that one stumbles upon on leaving Beaune. Unlike other white dominated appellations, 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.

Please note: due to high demand, online purchases of 2019 Burgundies are limited to 1 case of each wine. For more information please contact your account manager or wine@goedhuis.com

    Protected from the spring frosts this year, this is a superb cuvée. Attractive scents of warm butter and freshly baked bread. This has a silky volume which caresses the palate and a fine degree of concentration. A delicious example of the appellation of Meursault.

    As always, this is a more angular and less fleshy wine with more edge and grunt. There is some power here and also some rocky grip and less overt fruit and it will open up over time, but TdM has the edge now and certainly for the next year or two.

    No new wood is used on wines with more clay in the soil, as is the case here. Pretty pale lemon colour, not much more weight of fruit than the Bourgogne Oligocene on the nose, but with an extra intensity and attractive crystalline acidity behind. 3 stars

    Jean-Philippe is a great fan of the Chevalières lieu dit, renowned for producing intense wines with a full structure. A very floral style, white summer stone fruits give way to a touch of Jersey cream and brioche. Very full, with great persistence.

    Turning the volume knob up a little, we have more fruit here than is found in Le Tesson, but it is slightly closed and there is more minerality here than found in Gruyaches and with this it holds more acidity, too, all of the way along the flavour trail. Tougher to enjoy right now, but packed with potential, this is a wine for the future, but it will unfurl beautifully in time and be a rock star.

    A combination of two lieux dits: Les Clous and Les Crotots. This blend always balances the racy freshness of fruit from the higher slopes of Les Clous with the rich creamy generosity produced by Les Crotots. Quite a structured and intense Meursault. A touch of bitter orange on the attack evolves to reveal the creamy Crotots characters on the finish. Thought provoking and mouth-watering.

    Paler colour, mixed white fruit on the nose, actually quite discreet. More interest and complexity on the palate, ripe apple notes, some pear too, a little softer at the finish than Tillets. Plenty going on. 3 stars

    A fine example of Jean-Philippe’s style. Soft and gentle, with white fruit, buttery notes, a hint of panna cotta and vanilla. The luscious fruit is balanced by seamless freshness and a bold line of acid zip. Lovely.

    A little bit closed and firm, with a hint of muscle on the palate, this is an abrupt wine with little perfume and it needs a chance to settle. It slightly falls between two stools.

    Fichet’s blended Meursault has a pale lemon colour along with some good fruit weight to the nose. The palate expresses solid powerful white fruit with a few tannins behind. A good level of acidity too enhances the balance. 3 stars

    At 91 years’ old, Gruyaches is the oldest of Jean-Philippe’s vineyards, planted by his grandfather in 1928. These aged, deep-rooted vines coped superbly in the drier summer months, accessing water stores deep in the soil, and have produced a terrific 2019. Bright straw colour, with layers of fresh fruit flavours. There is no sign of any vine stress, just a full, rich wine finishing on freshly juiced peaches.

    Darker tones in fruit and veg terms and more tied to the soil in terms of minerality and depth, this is a profound Gruyaches which manages to nail this vineyard’s character while retaining brightness and lift on the nose. Clever and fascinating but not showy.

    Still the old vines from 1928, which are holding up really well. Pale lemon in colour with a fine classical nose. The depth of the root system in fuller soil is paying off. This is beautiful on the palate, sumptuous yet firmly anchored in the acidity. Excellent, albeit powerful, aftertaste. 4 stars

    This warm, enclosed site has delivered a rich concentrated wine in 2019. With masses of crème anglaise, ripe peach and white flowers, it has a generous opulence underpinned by a classic mineral backbone. Extremely giving, long and full on the finish.

    Pliable, layered, spring-like freshness and a delightful lightness of touch make this is a beautiful and elegant wine with clean lines, bright minerality and masses of verve. Forward-drinking but respectfully prim on the finish, this is a delicious wine with an indelible Fichet signature.

    Le Tesson is always one of the stars of this great domaine’s stable. Lore in the village has it that these steep easterly exposed slopes should have been classified as Premier Cru. Controlled and energetic, this has fabulous purity, with hints of mandarin and lemon sherbet. Bright clean and fresh, with a tinge of freshly made crème caramel at the very end. Lovely.

    Plush and more toothsome on the mid-palate, this is a more upholstered and ever so slightly more decadent wine with a pliant mid-palate and a touch of wild honey and stone fruit which adds gloss and élan. More of an expressive style and drop-dead gorgeous already, this is a seriously attractive wine and it maintains Fichet restraint, too.

    Just half a crop. Mid primrose in colour. There is the usual high class Tesson bouquet with white fruit and a mineral feel. The fruit absolutely fills the mouth with some orange zest accompanying the acidity at the back and pure white fruit. Not overheated. Jean-Philippe had gone into one of his self-deprecating moods, but I like this wine. 4 stars
