2019 Bourgogne Chardonnay, Michel Bouzereau

The fruit for this blend comes from three sites in Meursault (making up 60%), with the remainder from a single plot in Puligny. It is lemony, full of energy, and completely delicious; you’d be hard pressed to find a more crowd-pleasing Bourgogne Blanc, and even harder pressed to find one with these credentials coming in at the same price. It’s well structured enough to offer interest and complexity over the next four to five years, too.

TASTING NOTES

The 2019 Bourgogne Blanc comes 60% from Meursault and 40% from Puligny. Matured for 12 months in barrel, 60% in demi-muids and the rest in pièces, and racked at the end of July, it has a pleasant grass clipping and apricot nose. The palate is fresh on the entry with a touch of bitter lemon and a bright if short finish.

Domaine Michel Bouzereau

Michel Bouzereau is a man of great sway in Burgundy. He’s both head of the Bouzereau clan as well as President of the prestigious Burgundy Growers’ Union. There is undoubtedly quite a shadow for his son Jean-Baptiste to have stepped into. However, Jean-Baptiste has forged his own way, combining his father's traditionalist philosophy with a fresher style. The result are expressive wines from his eleven hectares of vines in Meursault and Puligny.
