Magic in Meursault
2018 Pierre Boisson Grands Charrons

The Boisson family makes Meursault exactly as we like it: intensely mineral, nervy, and with perfectly-judged richness. 

The Grands Charrons is always one of the high points of the lineup. 

"This is lovely" - Burghound
2018 Lafon Meursault

"This is excellent" -Burghound
2017 Lafon Meursault Clos de la Barre

Lafon has never been better. Along with Roulot and Coche-Dury, Lafon is the standard-bearer of Meursault. His 2017s show this benchmark in top form.

At The Height Of His Powers:
2017 Lafon Meursault Clos de la Baronne

You'd have to look towards Coche and Roulot. In recent vintages, it's become clear that Lafon is at the top of his game.

Meursault Secret - Vines Planted in 1918:
2017 Fichet Meursault Les Gruyaches

Burgundy is full of quirky overachieving wines that cruise under-the-radar. Fichet's Gruyaches is one of them.

"Lovely and built-to-age"
2017 Germain Meursault 1er Cru Charmes

Germain's 2017 collection is brilliant.

Today, we're happy to offer one of the top wines of the collection, the Meursault 1er Cru Charmes. 

"Chiseled and energetic"
2017 Henri Germain Meursault

Henri Germain's Meursaults may cruise under the radar, but they are some of the most exciting examples of the appellation.

"This is excellent"
- 2017 Lafon Meursault 1er Cru Les Porusots

Lafon's 2017 Porusots is epic.

The wine is a finely etched and tension-filled powerhouse.  

"A gorgeous combination of finesse and class. Marvelous"
- 2017 Roulot Meursault 1er Cru Clos des Bouchères

In 2017, Roulot took things to another level. The collection dazzles, reaching a point that flirts with perfection.

Punching Above Its Weight Class:
2017 Ballot Millot Meursault Les Criots

If 2014 represented a breakthrough vintage for Ballot Millot, 2017 cements just how important this domaine is destined to become in Burgundy. For us, the outrageous quality of Ballot Millot's 2017 shines brightest at the lower end. Their Perrières and other Meursault 1er Crus are great, but at the villages levelthe quality is shocking.

"A beguiling sense of vibrancy" - 2017 Roulot Meursault Villages

Roulot is producing some of the most riveting and mineral-driven expressions of Chardonnay on the planet. In 2017, the domaine takes things to another level. The collection dazzles reaching a point that flirts with perfection. They are clear, balanced and precise.

"Superb" - Neil Martin, Vinous Media
2017 Ballot Millot Meursault 1er Cru Perrières

The 1er Cru Perrières is holy ground for Chardonnay. Meursault doesn’t have any Grand Crus, but there’s no doubt that Perrières can rival Grand Crus from other villages.

Don't Miss White Burgundy
2017 Heitz-Lochardet Meursault "Les Gruyaches"

With each vintage, Heitz-Lochardet seems to go from strength to strength. The 2017s are jaw-dropping.

2017 Coche-Dury Bourgogne Blanc & Meursault

There's nothing like the wines of Coche-Dury. They exist on a plane of their own. Coche's wines work on a very elite level, and you don't need to look far up the hierarchy to witness undeniable proof of this.

2013 Roulot Meursault Villages

Roulot produced simply magical 2013s. Roulot's work with Chardonnay is on another plane. No one renders the grape with such a riveting expression - razor sharp, indisputably noble, and emphatically mineral.

"This is lovely and a classic example"
- 2017 Heitz-Lochardet Meursault 1er Cru Les Perrieres

It's been fun to watch Heitz-Lochardet start to really take off. It seems like everyone I give a bottle to comes back wanting a half-dozen more.

At The Height of His Powers:
2014 Lafon Meursault Clos de la Baronne

Lafon continues to go from strength to strength. His 2014s are breathtaking.

Under-The-Radar Meursault Star:
2014 Genot-Boulanger Meursault 1er Cru Les Bouchères

We've been huge fans of Génot-Boulanger's recent vintages, but their 2014s demand the attention of a larger audience. The wines are a pitch-perfect expression of the vintage, with amazing concentration, clarity and harmony. The lineup perfectly captures all of the precision and lifted elegance that made 2014 a home run for White Burgs.

Here Today, Gone Tomorrow:
2014 Pierre Boisson Meursault

This is one of those emails that I write with trepidation.

2014 Ballot Millot Meursault 1er Cru Perrières

Ballot Millot has been amassing vineyards in Burgundy since the 17th Century. 2014 represents a breakout vintage for the domaine.

Holy Ground: 2014 Dancer Meursault 1er Cru Perrières

"Dancer's 2014s are among the best wines that I have ever seen from him and they are very much worth your attention." Over the past few vintages we've been watching the quality of Dancer's wines soar. As the Burghound quote above makes clear, they hit the next level in 2014.
