Meursault Les Grands Charrons, Michel Bouzereau, Burgundy, France 2018
Regular price £58.80
Ten generations of the Bouzereau family have tended vines in Meursault and Puligny. Their traditional approach has brought dividends with expressive, well-defined wines.
The Bouzereau clan is widespread in the village of Meursault, with Domaine Michel Bouzereau at the forefront. Michel Bouzereau comes from a large winemaking family and has held the post of President of the Burgundy Growers Union. His is a voice to be heard. And what he likes to talk about is the traditional way of making wine. He ferments in cask and gives his wines nine months on their lees. Determined that his wines will smell and taste only of wine, the importance of new wood is acknowledged but downplayed. Michel’s so Jean-Baptiste is now in charge of making the seventeen wines from this 11-hectare estate.
Jean-Baptiste has respected his father’s more traditionalist practices but he has instilled a fresher, livelier element to the wines which only enhances their appeal. These wines offer very good value for money and are benchmark examples for each of the crus.
Meursault Les Grands Charrons 2018
Refined, delicate Meursault showing smoky, nutty aromas, and then a powerful, citrussy palate. Bright and invigorating – a great example of the modern Meursault style.
