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 elder statesmen in the village very much consider this fine vineyard a 1er Cru equivalent.It is only due to a quirk of history and appellational bureaucracy that it isn’t. A slightly more extravagant style of wine than its near neighbour, the Chevalières. Characters of brioche and warm buttered croissant, this is all on harmony and joy. It just excites throughout its time in the palate, layered, full and a perfectly complete example of fine Meursault.

  • Burghound, June 2022, Score: 91-93

    Here too there is a spicy character to the more floral if less citrusy aromas of essence of pear, apple and passion fruit. The equally elegant and pure medium-bodied flavors that possess more concentration and power on the gorgeously textured and impressively lengthy finale. This wonderfully stylish effort often rivals the Referts in quality and it appears that it will do the same in 2020. Excellent. Outstanding. Top value. Drink: 2028+

  • Jasper Morris MW, January 2022, Score: 90-93

    A little more colour here, normal for Tesson compared to Chevalières, and a slightly softer nose, a little more in yellow fruit. Very good tension through the middle, nonetheless, builds to the back, with fair persistence.
