Meursault Charmes 1er Cru Cuvée Bahezre de Lanlay
Côte de Beaune|
Level: Premier Cru
|AOC: Meursault Charmes 1er Cru|
Fine pale colour. The bouquet immediately demonstrates the concentration of this cuvée. Predominantly white fruit in style, with some pears in the mix, this displays the full rounded weight of a classic Meursault Charmes, relieved by a correct balancing acidity. The fragrance of balanced yet ripe chardonnay from a great terroir persist beautifully at the finish.
veal steack with wild mushrooms, fillet of sole in white butter sauce, old sheep’s milk cheese.
Louis de Bahèzre de Lanlay was an inspector of telegraph lines, who bequeathed his fortune to the Hospices de Beaune in 1884, enabling the construction of a surgical block and an old people’s building. This is the larger of the two Hospices Cuvées of Meursault-Charmes, and often the more mineral in character. It comes from very old vines: half from Charmes Dessous (planted 1947), half from Charmes Dessus (planted 1946).
