Meursault Porusots 1er Cru Cuvée Jéhan Humblot 2012
Côte de Beaune|
Level: Premier Cru
|AOC: Meursault Porusots 1er Cru|
Splendid yellow bright colour. Nose with almond, quince and sunny citrus fruits. Dense mouth that nonetheless preserves its minerality and the amplitude of this great terroir.
The generosity and intensity of this wine will match food in the same vein: grilled seafood, mushroom creamy soup, poultry with truffles.
Jéhan Humblot was the state prosecutor and royal notary in Beaune. He donated an extensive property near Montagny to the Hôtel-Dieu, in 1600. For the first time in 2005, this Cuvée was made up entirely from the Premier Cru Growth Les Porusots. All the vines here pre-date 1975, indeed some date back to 1936 and 1953.
