Meursault – cuvée Loppin en primeur
Hospices de Beaune 2022
Côte de Beaune|
The 2022 vintage is clearly remarkable. The robe of this wine is yellow with pale green hues. The nose is precise and intense: fresh citrus (lemon, lime) and a touch of white flowers (peony), honey and apricot. The fine elegance and density of Meursault is definitely here in the mouth too. A fantastic wine with a great ageing potential.
Oysters, seafood, grilled fish with coriander, thai-style soup, goat cheese.
Several members of the Loppin family made gifts to the two establishments: Hôtel-Dieu and Hospice de la Charité. Jéhan Loppin, Archdeacon, in 1656 received Queen Christina of Sweden on the square in front of the Collegiate church of Beaune. Two years later, he pronounced a harangue to Queen Mother Anne of Austria with her son, King Louis XIV, le Roi- Soleil, who signed his name in the book of the Confrérie du Saint- Esprit, at the Hôtel-Dieu. A part of this Cuvée comes from Premier Cru (Les Cras), the other half from village level Les Criots. The Premier Cru Les Gras vines date from 1980. 0.2 ha. of Les Criots were planted in 1997, the balance (0.36 ha.) in 2009.
