“Broad, nicely textured wine with straw, grilled nuts and rich fruit on the palate… a mini Meursault?” Wilson on Wine 2019: Wines to Drink This Year
The Bouzereau family have been at the heart of winemaking in Meursault for many generations, with Domaine Michel Bouzereau the pre-eminent producer of the extended family. Michel’s son Jean Baptiste has been running the estate for the past ten years. Their phoilosophy is simple with vines cultivated without any chemical fertilizers and all the harvesting done by hand. The estate comprises 12 ha predominantly in Meursault and Puligny-Montrachet. The style focusses on purity, with great elegance. Concentration and finesse show great potential for ageing. We include the Bourgogne Chardonnay in recognition of its depth and richness at this level: coming from vines in Meursault and Puligny, this wine’s quality equals many village examples from here.
