Meursault is a big, rich and voluptuous style of wine synonymous with luxury, and is the Chardonnay that the world aims to emulate. Although it has a beautiful refreshing citrus backbone, its key flavours are butter, toasted almonds, hazelnuts and floral notes. It is very dry, yet soft and mouth coating. Give this to any Burgundy lover, and they will be yours forever.
The Parigots have 18 hectares across 6 communes in Burgundy and they are specialists in France’s most prestigious white grape, Chardonnay. They are advocates of lutte raisonnée, meaning they use a few chemicals as possible. This sustainable approach is apparent in the tension, focus and intensity of their wines. Established in the 1960s, they have honed their craft to these fabulous glasses of liquid gold.
