More information about Chardonnay Meursault AOC - Joseph Drouhin

The Chardonnay Meursault of Joseph Drouhin from Burgundy offers a bright, golden yellow color in the swirled glass. After the first swirl, one can perceive a perfect balance in this white wine, as it stands out on the glass walls neither watery nor syrupy or liqueur-like. In the glass, this white wine from Joseph Drouhin reveals aromas of pears and mirabelles, complemented by lime blossom and honey. The Joseph Drouhin Chardonnay Meursault delights with its elegantly dry flavor. It was bottled with exceptionally little residual sugar. This is a real quality wine, which clearly stands out from simpler qualities and so this Frenchman enchants naturally with all dryness with the finest balance. Excellent taste does not necessarily need a lot of residual sugar. On the tongue, this well-balanced white wine is characterized by an incredibly silky texture. In the finish, this very storable wine from the Burgundy wine-growing region finally inspires with considerable length. Once again, hints of pear and mirabelle plum appear. In the aftertaste, mineral notes of the limestone and marl dominated soils are added.

Vinification of the Joseph Drouhin Chardonnay Meursault

The basis for the balanced Chardonnay Meursault from France are grapes from the Chardonnay grape variety. The grapes grow under optimal conditions in Burgundy. Here, the vines dig their roots deep into soils of limestone and marl. Chardonnay Meursault is an Old World wine in the best sense of the word, as this Frenchman exudes an extraordinary European charm that clearly underscores the success of Old World wines. At the time of optimal ripeness, the grapes for Chardonnay Meursault are harvested exclusively by hand without the use of punishing and barely selective machinery. After the harvest, the grapes reach the press house by the fastest route. Here they are selected and carefully broken up. Fermentation follows in large wood at controlled temperatures. Fermentation is followed by aging for 12 months in oak barrels.

Food recommendation for the Chardonnay Meursault by Joseph Drouhin

This white wine from France is best enjoyed well chilled at 8 - 10°C. It is perfect as an accompaniment to spinach gratin with almonds, coconut-lime fish curry or asparagus salad with quinoa.
