Wine of the Day

2010PMarchandMeursault2010 Pascal Marchand,  Meursault AC, White Burgundy, France.
The Marchand Meursault is a brilliant wine and a stunning example of pure Chardonnay at it’s best with lots of pleasure, mineral intensity and complexity. The 2010 Meursault shows citrus flowers, wet stones and tropical essences on the nose which leads to a vivid and clear palate of lime, lemon, white peach and a mix of apple and kiwi with chalky mineral, honeyed pear, clove and a touch of hazelnut. The subtle use of wood adds smooth richness, but doesn’t interfere with the purity and drive in this glorious wine and the focus is spot on while the finish holds a hint of earth and saline begging you to revisit this wine again and again. This rare treat with be a challenge to find, but the rewards will be worth it. This is what Chardonnay wines should aspire to be, elegant, vibrant and memorable!
