Meursault Les Criots
Domaine du Pavillon 2020
Côte de Beaune|
Nose: fresh flowers, citrus and a bit of grassy undertones. A modern-style Meursault, meaning not too fat or buttery but rather going in the mineral precision direction. Great balance where maturity and power do not hide intrinsic freshness.
Mouth: generous and full-bodied with dried fruits balanced by citrus and quince. Beautiful length and ageing potential.
Smoked salmon, chicken breast in creamy sauce, mature mountain cheese. Or just as a perfect treat for an aperitif!
Situation: a small plot (1/2 an hectare) in the village of Meursault, kingdom of Burgundy’s best whites. Rather old vines.
Know-how: hand harvested in small baskets. Vinified and aged in oak barrels, in a very traditional way. Ageing for 12 months (30% max new oak with fresh forests origins)
