Xavier Monnot Meursault Les Chevalieres 2015
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 SpectatorThis offers a linear frame, keeping a tight leash on the lime blossom, peach, melon and apple flavors. Shows a lovely creamy texture and a mineral vein that weaves throughout. Terrific length. Drink now through 2025. 1,500 cases made.
