Meursault: Regional profile & 33 wines tasted

Charles Curtis MW reports that there is far more to Meursault than the rich, opulent white wines for which it is so renowned.

Many people know – or think they know – the wine of Meursault. A rich wine with aromas of hazelnut, butter, an edge of honey and a bit of oak spice all fit into the stock conception of Meursault.

However, after tasting more than a hundred wines and visiting 18 Meursault producers, I am more convinced than ever that there are many Meursaults, and it pays to discover them all. As Dr. Lavalle wrote in 1855: ‘After Montrachet, I know of no other white wine more exquisite.’
