Saint-Romain Cuvée Joseph Menault
Côte de Beaune|
Pale yellow colour with green tones. A lot of precision in the nose (lime, hint of grapefruit), followed by a mouth where finesse and intensity combine. The altitude of the terroirs allow it to keep its fresh minerality throughout, defining a beautiful Burgundy.
Oysters, octopus salad with coriander, grilled fish, thai spicy soup.
This wine is named after a generous benefactor, Joseph Menault, who donated vineyards to the Hôtel-Dieu in 1992. All the vines needed replanting, and this took place in 1994 (le village haut) and 1998 (Sous la Velle). The village of Saint-Romain is situated in a precipitous cleft of hills, just west of Meursault. Over half of this Cuvée comes from a steeply-sloping vineyard, Le Village Haut, located above 400 metres, near the highest point of Saint-Romain. The balance comes from Sous la Velle, 50 meters lower down. Previous vintages tasted display intense perfume, raciness and minerality.
