2017 Bitouzet-Prieur Meursault 'Les Corbins'
100% organically grown Chardonnay, fermented with native yeasts and aged in 20% new French oak. Only about 600 bottles of this wine make it to the USA every year. This is classic Meursault in character. The nose offers some spicy vanilla oak along with white stonefruit touches. The palate has a charming balance of broad stone-fruit and intense freshness which is driven by a persistent acidity running from start to finish. Elegant for a low-slope Meursault. Drink 2021-2027. There’s still a lot of bottle development to go on this wine.
