Magical 2017 Meursault Mixed Case
You may have heard me wax lyrical about the freshness, zip and energy of the 2017 vintage for white Burgundy before, and we have put together a brilliant mixed case from some of our favourite Meursault Domaines for you to experience it for yourself.
First off one of my favourite additions to our portfolio of producers in recent years, Domaine Boyer-Martenot and Vincent Boyers superb lieu dit "En l'Ormeau". Vincent took the decision, starting with this 2017 vintage, to not only dial the oak influence right back, but also to age the wine in concrete eggs for a further year before bottling sounds technical but the result is an absolutely seamless wine, harmonious, beautifully textured and oh-so expressive and characterful stunning and begging to be enjoyed now.
Next wed like to take you on a little trip up the hill of Meursault, to its highest point, the Blagny area. The coolest part of the village, it has always produced elegant whites, full of vivacity. Global warming is adding real power and concentration to these wines, and in fact some of the forest at the top of the hill is making way for new vineyard planting. This is very much an area to look out for. Louis Latour's Château de Blagny has been the standard bearer for this terroir for many decades and the 2017 is a classic example, with its vibrant core of apple fruit, notes of ginger spice and saline finish. This is the perfect counterpart for Domaine Gérard Thomas et Filles' version; our best-selling top white Burgundy producer, they use the natural crispness to great effect, balancing it beautifully with a rich, creamy texture and seductive, satisfying vanilla-oak flavours. Very moreish indeed!
Our last Meursault mixed case vanished faster than one can say chardonnay, and I would recommend a quick reaction to ensure you dont miss out on the chance to enjoy these white Burgundy gems.
