Situated just south of Volnay and Pommard in the Côte de Beaune, Meursault is the most extensive southerly white wine commune of the Côte-d’Or. Surprisingly enough for an appellation of this quality, no Grand Cru exists, however the high quality of the 1er Cru more then compensates for this. An exclusive of Maison Louis Latour (monopole), the vineyards constituting the estate of the Château de Blagny are located high on the hillside overlooking Meursault and Puligny-Montrachet. Château de Blagny is the most important domaine in the commune.
Fermentation: Traditional in oak barrels with complete malolactic fermentation
Ageing: 8 to 10 months ageing in oak barrels, 35% new
Barrels: Louis Latour cooperage, french oak, medium toasted
Tasting Note: Our Meursault Premier Cru « Château de Blagny » 2013 has a pale yellow color. The nose is intense and complex with notes of toasted almond, fresh butter, vanilla and yellow peach. On the palate, the wine is well-balanced between fullness and persistence. A lot of elegance with notes of almond and fresh hazelnut.
Food Pairing: Rock lobster – salmon with sorrel sauce – pan-fried chanterelles – cheese
