Domaine Bouchard Père et Fils 2015 'Meursault Les Clous', Burgundy, France

On the "terroir" of Meursault, some of the vineyards classified as village appellation are situated on a marly ground, identical to the Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru (only the topography and altitude are different). These vineyards of a great quality deserve to be vinified separately. This is the case for the terroir of Les Clous whose name apparently comes from a deformation of the word "Clos". The Bouchard Père et Fils estate owns 8.64 hectares here, i.e. almost half of the total area

Winemaker | Frédéric Weber
Farming | Sustainable with Organic Practices
Variety | Chardonnay
Terroir | Eastern exposure on calcareous marl.
Vinification | Hand harvested, hand-sorted. The pressing takes place in two phases: evacuation of the first juice, then pressing in two-hourly cycles. Depending on the profile of the vintage, vatting lasts 15 to 20 days.
Aging | 8 to 10 months in French oak, with up to 10% new oak, depending on the vintage, and for 2 to 3 months in stainless steel vats. These wines enjoy the optimum ambient conditions in the cellars of the Bastions ofthe ancient Château de Beaune.
Tasting Note | Intense bouquet of fruit and flowers combined with a delicate mineral hint.Rich and subtil wine with good crisp, which makes it very balanced. Good ageing potential
Scores | 92 Points Wine Spectator, 91 Points James Suckling
