94pts Wine Spectator

Aromas of seashore and oyster shell frame the lime blossom, apple and spice flavors in this vibrant white, which shows fine harmony and energy, ending with a long, resonant finish. Drink now through 2026. 330 cases made, 100 cases imported.

94pts Wine Enthusiast

Swirls of smoke and caramelized honey accent white blossom and pear in this fresh-fruited, zesty but opulent white. Tart pineapple and lemon flavors pierce on the midpalate but finish with a delicate kiss of vanilla. Still approaching peak, the wine should soar from 2023 through 2035. ANNA LEE C. IIJIMA

Winemaker Notes

Wines from Meursault are 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 30-35% 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. Oak-aged Chardonnay from warmer climates lends itself well to grilled fish, starches, butter, and toasted nuts.
