Tasting Notes

  • GDH

    Goedhuis, December 2018

    Striking lemon yellow colour. Jean-Philippe picked the grapes from his old vines at the start of the harvest. This allowed him to keep the natural creamy richness that aged vines provide whilst preserving the brightness and freshness of fruit. A wine of harmony and great appeal in a very Meursault way.

    Score: 86-89

    Here the nose is similar to that of the regular cuvée while offering just a bit more complexity. There is more volume and richness to the vibrant flavors that retain good cut while delivering fine persistence. This would make a very good choice for an all-around house white. Outstanding Top Value. Drink 2021+

    A considerable step up over the regular Bourgogne, Fichet's 2017 Bourgogne Blanc Vieilles Vignes unfurls in the glass with notes of beeswax, pear, white flowers and waxy lemon rind. On the palate, it's similarly tangy but fleshier and more concentrated, with depth and structure that nod to Meursault.

    Score: 88-90

    Bright, pale yellow. Complex aromas and flavors of white peach, citrus fruits and minerals, plus a toasty nuance. At once fine-grained and nicely chiseled, conveying a captivating balance of sweetness and acidity. Finishes with real punch and length. This is Bourgogne Blanc at the quality level of Meursault.
