Description

Emblematic city of the Burgundy wine route, Meursault has a great wine, tourist, and cultural heritage.
Domaine Fabien Coche welcomes you in its cellars and makes you discover this rich and exciting local terroir.

South of Beaune, the slopes of Meursault (21 Côte d'Or) are facing east. The upper vines benefit from the rock, those in the middle from a more generous soil while those at the bottom reach a less dry soil.

Meursault is the emblem of the great white wines from the Chardonnay grape variety.

The subtle blend of limestone, clay, and marl, combined with the natural undulation of the hillsides, reveals a wide range of terroirs promising incomparable moments and unforgettable flavours.

Review

The 2019 Meursault 1er Cru Goutte d'Or is lovely, bursting with aromas of pear, grapefruit, and white flowers mingled with hints of nutmeg and struck match. Medium to full-bodied, deep, and concentrated, with lively acids and a ripe core of fruit despite a youthfully tight-knit structure, it shows plenty of promise.

Tasting Profile

Palate
From 80+-year-old vines located in the middle of the appellation in one of its best 1er cru sites which gained its name from the tiny flint stones which glistened in the vineyard hence the name meaning drops of gold. Notably floral and lifted this wine shows excellent old-vine intensity and lively acidity giving great shape and length to the palate. Finer and racier than the Charmes this wine wants more time to show its best. A fabulous 1er cru by any standards.
