En Primeur | Spotlight on Meursault

Meursault is the first of the famous three white communes to the south of Beaune, before you come to Puligny and Chassagne Montrachet. It consists of 300 hectares of village wine and 132 hectares of 1ers Crus. Reputed for producing an opulent Chardonnay with rich, creamy fruit, growers are increasingly seeking a mineral edge to their wines, beautifully expressed in these 2020s. We’re limiting purchases to 1 or 2 cases per wine due to high demand. Please contact your account manager or wine@goedhuis.com to discuss larger quantities.

  • Goedhuis, November 2021

    The 5 parcels that make up this cuvée within the lieu dit of Les Tillets are situated on the higher slopes of Meursault facing south-east influencing a more mineral style of Meursault. The initial sensations of freshly baked baguette show a wine of wonderful intensity, beautifully concentrated with the palate rewarded at the end with a finely chiselled freshness, giving a cleansing sensation and great length.

  • Burghound, June 2022, Score: 90

    A cool, pure and restrained nose reflects airy and elegant notes of acacia, green apple, anise and a whiff of citrus rind. There is a beguiling sense of underlying tension to the detailed and mineral-inflected flavors that culminate in an attractively dry, clean and lingering finale. This is fine Meursault villages with the innate finesse of Tillets on display. Outstanding. Top value. Drink: 2026+

  • Matthew Jukes, January 2022, Score: 17.5

    There is more refinement still in Les Tillets, and it looks rather quiet and slender in the context of the vintage. The fruit is cool and classy, and there is a keen edge of acidity throughout. I like this stylish version of this cuvée, and I am sure it will hold nicely even though it seems to be so welcoming already.

  • Jasper Morris MW, January 2022, Score: 92

    Bottled end November. Mid yellow in colour, but fresh. There is an impressive weight of fruit for this hillside vineyard. Significant volume of fresh fruit, tinged with its usual lime blossom character, and good crisp finish with just the right acidity. Plenty of flesh nonetheless. Nice finale on fresh apple fruit.
