2019 Meursault 1er Cru Les Poruzots, Domaine de Montille

Poruzots is a premier cru in the heart of the Meursault hillside, and the de Montille vines lie in the upper half, generally thought to be the finest part of the cru. It has a deliciously fragrant nose of ripe Amalfi lemon and a superbly sustained finish.

Tasting notes

The 2019 Meursault Les Porusots 1er Cru, one of the last crus that de Montille picks, has a backward, tightly wound bouquet that is very focused and delivers lovely candied orange peel and white peach aromas, plus just a touch of grilled walnut in the background. The palate is well balanced with a smooth entry, light tropical tones and a harmonious finish, though I would have liked a little more tension and nervosité.
