Although this is not a premier cru, this 33-acre vineyard sits right next to some of Meursault's finest vines. The wine is mineral, tight and textured— a wine that should age. With touches of oak, spice and intense yellow fruits, it is ripe while still closed at this stage. It certainly needs aging and will be ready from 2019.
