Full-bodied whites - MEURSAULT, 1er Cru Porusots, Château de Puligny Montrachet. Burgundy

2013 MEURSAULT, 1er Cru Porusots, Château de Puligny Montrachet. Burgundy

Organic

Bin: 260
Alcohol Percentage: 12.5%
Area: Meursault is the northernmost of the renowned white wine villages, coming before Chassagne and Puligny. Its reputation is for golden, nutty, rich whites. Nowadays producers are aiming for something more fine and delicate - and this is certainly in that modern style.
Porusots (sometimes spelt Poruzots) is a 1er Cru vineyard just above the village, next to Genevrières.
Grape Variety: Chardonnay matured in French oak (minimal new wood) for a year, followed by 4 months in steel tank before bottling.
Producer: "Chateau de Puligny-Montrachet was a slumbering force until it was awoken by the arrival of Etienne de Montille in time to oversee the 2001 vintage. Under Etienne, yields have been drastically reduced and the wines are handled much more sympathetically in the cellar so that the quality of the fruit dominates the oak.
In 2012 Étienne and investors purchased the property and have radically reformed the estate, dropping unsuitable vineyards, converting to organic (and indeed biodynamic) farming, and further improving the winemaking.
Puligny needs more Premiership performers, and Château de Puligny has already established its credentials as an elite respresentative." Jasper Morris MW.
Old Bridge Rating: Only 12.5% alcohol. This is a delicate and fine expression of Meursault, very different to more traditional styles.
