2019 Meursault Les Grands Charrons, Michel Bouzereau

This is one of the gems on our list: it may be village on paper, but this exceptionally well-placed parcel - an east-facing limestone vineyard that extends just beyond the band of premiers crus - delivers well beyond its status in the glass. It has a more amplified weight than the Bourgogne with a plump citrus fruit and nectarine drive.

2019 Meursault Les Grands Charrons, Michel Bouzereau

TASTING NOTES

The 2019 Meursault Les Grands Charrons, also taken from tank, has a well-defined bouquet of citrus fruit infused with touches of yellow flower; hints of apricot blossom emerge with time. The palate is well balanced with a brisk, citrus- and lime-tinged entry. Taut at the moment, but there is palpable energy here, and a persistent, ginger-infused finish. Excellent.

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.
