Winemaker Notes :

The soil of Les Chevalières is very stony and the wine typically displays a strong mineral character, firm acidity, and piercing tension. This Meursault is typified by aromas and flavors of ripe melon, hazelnut, and lemon custard, and tend to be broader and more textural than wines from neighboring villages. Aging in 15-20% percent small French oak barrels lends notes of toast and vanilla.

White Burgundy, with its richness, texture, and toasted flavors pairs well with light fish and shellfish and can counterbalance cream-based sauces.

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Meursault Chevalières, which was taken from tank, has a lifted walnut and hazelnut-scented bouquet. I would like to see a little more precision come through by the time it is in bottle. The palate is balanced if a little simplistic at the moment, requiring some more tension and mineralité to develop on the sappy finish. Maybe that will come with time? There is room for improvement here. Drink Date: 2018-2024.
