Meursault

Meursault is one of the three great White Burgundy villages along with Chassagne & Puligny. Many would argue that there are a few other villages vying to join the three.

Sandwiched between Puligny-Montrachet and Volnay, Meursault’s wines naturally vary from plot to plot, they have the potential to show the polar opposites of richness through to great elegance and delicacy. Soil composition and exposure providing great diversity.

For mine the most exciting Meursault wines show a delicacy, transparency, weightlessness with tension while still have a depth and length of flavour to match their standing in the hierarchy from Bourgogne to 1er Cru. Meursault having no Grand Cru vineyards.

98% of Meursault’s production is white wine.  Whilst it has no Grand Cru’s. It has a cluster of Premier Cru’s next to Puligny-Montrachet and a second cluster next to Volnay.

The Appellation used to describe the wines depends on the variety, Pinot or Chardonnay, and the adjacent Appellation. For example, the cluster next to Volnay uses the Appellation Volnay-Santenot for the red Premier Cru’s. This makes sense when you consider the reputation for reds from Volnay. Whites from the same area use Meursault Premier Cru.

The key on the map details all of the different naming conventions.

Look out for the White Meursalt Premier Cru’s Charmes, Perriers, and, Genevrières. The best-known producers are Roulot, Comte Lafon & Coche Dury. There are many others making stunning wines.

In total there are 18 Premier Crus.

Henri Germain's 2019's


Domaine Henri Germain Meursault ‘Les Chevalières’ 2019

A slightly cooler nose reflects notes of spice, freshly sliced apple, petrol and a whiff of hazelnut. The delicate but emphatically punchy flavors exude evident minerality on the sneaky long finish. Like the straight Meursault, I very much like the texture of the lilting mid-palate. A wine of finesse and understatement. Allen Meadows, Burghound

Domaine Henri Germain Meursault ‘Limozin’ 2019

The 2019 Meursault Le Limozin is superb, mingling aromas of pear, yellow orchard fruit, almond paste and pastry cream with hints of white flowers and mint. Medium to full-bodied, textural and precise, it combines impressive mid-palate volume with terrific cut. This will be well worth seeking out. William Kelley

Domaine Henri Germain Côte d’Or Blanc 2019

Here too there is plenty of citrus influence to the white orchard fruit aromas that are trimmed in petrol nuances. There is equally good energy to the well-detailed and delicious middle weight flavors that conclude in a slightly firmer and bracingly dry finish. This too is excellent for its level.

Domaine Henri Germain Meursault 2019

The 2019 Meursault Village is excellent, unwinding in the glass with aromas of crisp orchard fruit, freshly baked bread, honeycomb, white flowers and struck match. Medium to full-bodied, satiny and incisive, with a tightly wound and concentrated core, racy acids and a long, chalky finish, this will be a slower burn than its 2018 counterpart, but it will also hit higher heights.

A Drop of Chassagne!

Domaine Henri Germain Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru ‘Morgeot Les Fairendes’ 2019

The 2019 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru Morgeot Les Fairendes unfurls in the glass with notes of mirabelle plum, clear honey, white flowers and fresh pastry. Medium to full-bodied, satiny and textural, it's deep and enveloping while remaining mouthwateringly bright and mineral. This is one of the more gourmand wines in the range. William Kelley

Henri Germain's 2018's


Domaine Henri Germain Côte d’Or Blanc 2018

"A notably ripe yet still attractively fresh nose flashes a hint of exotic fruit character on the notes of white peach, poached pear and whiff of lychee. There is once again very good energy to the delicious, round and rich flavors that also deliver fine length on the clean and dry finish." Allen Meadows, Burghound

As usual, it's a blend of Vireuils, Les Pellans, Le Cromin and Au Moulin Judas." William Kelly, The Wine Advocate

The mouthfeel of the medium weight flavors is both sleeker and more refined if less generously proportioned while exhibiting a lovely minerality on the sneaky long finish. This is classic Chevalières, which is to say a wine of delicacy and finesse." Allen Meadows, Burghound

A Drop of Chassagne!

Domaine Henri Germain Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru ‘Morgeot Les Fairendes’ 2018

'Pungent notes of petrol and resin add breadth to the very ripe aromas of both yellow and white orchard fruit citrus and floral-suffused nose that is also trimmed in just enough wood to merit mentioning. There is impressive volume to the muscular, powerful and tension-filled middle weight plus flavors that possess a highly textured, even mildly creamy, mouthfeel where the citrus-tinged acid spine maintains the balance.' Allen Meadows, Burghound

“Domaine Henri Germain might well be Meursault’s best-kept secret. This is a superb source for classically balanced, artisanal white Burgundy that’s built to age, and the softly-spoken Jean-François Germain is justly one of the village’s most well-respected vignerons.”

William Kelley, The Wine Advocate


Ballot-Mllot's 2019's


Domaine Ballot-Millot Bourgogne Blanc 2019

Producer and site … that is all! When your Bourgogne is made from vineyards in Meursault and Puligny it really does make a difference. Ballot-Millot has given as a beautifully balanced wine, with a wonderful texture. Flavourful drinking beautifully now. An excellent Bourgogne with great fresh flavours, drinking beautifully now and good for a few more years. "Ripe and nicely layered aromas include those of various white orchard and citrus confit scents. There is fine density to the op

"A spicy and naturally exotic nose freely offers up notes of tea, white flowers and pretty essence of pear wisps. There is again terrific cut and intensity to the even more mineral-driven medium weight flavors that are shaped by bright and firm acidity on the sappy and hugely long finish. This is quite dense and unusually powerful for Genevrières. In a word, wonderful. Drink: 2029+ Outstanding ♥" Allen Meadows, Burghound

The Meursault + Friends of Domaine Patrick Javillier


A Brace of 7 Meursaults!

Domaine Patrick Javillier Meursault 2018

This is a new Javillier cuvee and as such has not had the chance for review. “It is a blend of several selected plots in Meursault. This wine shows great aromatic power with a good acid balance. It is a structured wine with a long finish. The 2018 vintage is characterized by the power but above all the elegance.” Marion Javillier

Domaine Patrick Javillier Meursault ‘Clos du Cromin’ 2018

Stepping up from the Bourgogne level wines in a big way. Building tension length and depth. Again excellent composure, tighter now as it should be. Give this 12 months and you’ll be in a very happy place. Entrancing nice white flowers on grapefruit. A little more energy. Excellent texture, chalky phenolic acid complex that works brilliantly. An edge of grapefruit esque bitterness. A wonderful fine example. The mid-palate depth is the thing that demonstrates the step up in quality here.

This is a classic Tillets of lace and grace. ♥ 2025+ Burghound

There is even better volume and mid-palate density to the muscular medium weight flavors that coat the mouth with dry extract on the overtly powerful finish where a hint of bitter lemon arises. This is a very serious Meursault villages that should amply repay up to a decade of cellaring. This too is recommended. ♥ 2026+ Burghound

A little Corton!

Domaine Patrick Javillier Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru 2018

A pretty if noticeably reserved nose features a layered assortment of mineral reduction, acacia blossom, lemon rind and freshly sliced Granny Smith apples. The succulent and tautly muscular larger-scaled flavors exhibit plenty of minerality while culminating in a powerful and beautifully persistent finale. This is really quite stylish and could aptly be described as a Corton-Charlemagne of refinement. 2028+ Burghound

Meursaults with real old vine intensity!

Chevalieres adjoins Les Luchets which is positioned against the top part of this lieu-dit.

Domaine Fabien Coche Meursault 1er Cru ‘Goutte d’Or’ 2019

From 80+ year old vines located in the middle of the appellation in one of its best 1er cru sites which gained its name from the from the tiny flint stones which glistened in the vineyard hence the name meaning drops of gold. Notably floral and lifted this wine shows excellent old vine intensity and lively acidity giving great shape and length to the palate. Finer and more racy than the Charmes this wine wants more time to show its best.
