Drouhin Meursault 2016 75cl 13% ABV
Drouhin Meursault 2016
A refined White Wine, well appreciated in the whole world. A beautiful golden colour and a great aromatic palette: honey, linden flower, hazelnut butter, sometimes even chamomile or hawthorn.
On the palate, a silky roundness. Long on the aftertaste, with flavours of yellow plum and gingerbread. This is a very homogeneous vintage. It is ripe and its aromatic structure is supported by its acidity balance. From charming to more intense, deep and complex.
Grown a few kilometres south of Beaune, in the celebrated terroir of Côte des Blancs (Slope of the Whites). Meursault is certainly one of the oldest villages in Burgundy. The camp of Mont Milan, above the present village, was erected and settled in Neolithic times (2,500 BC), before being occupied by the Gauls (500BC) and then the Romans. It was finally abandoned for the present location of the village built during the Gallo-Roman period, at which time the name Muris Saltus (Meursault) was given to it.
