Description of Joseph Drouhin Meursault 2005

Joseph Drouhin Meursault 2005 (Chardonnay)

Meursault is situated a few miles South of Beaune. It is a close neighbour of Puligny-Montrachet and Chassagne-Montrachet. The three villages together make up the famous Côte des Blancs in Burgundy. The origin of the name Meursault is somewhat controversial. Some people believe it is derived from the Latin "Muris Saltus" translated as "jump of a mouse". More probably, it comes from an old Celtic root, "mare", meaning swamp : the lower part of the village is actually on very flat land. Fortunately, the real appellation area is on chalky soil of a light brown colour, with many broken stones that reflect the sun during the day. It is a dry, poor soil, perfect to grow Chardonnay, the only variety used in this appellation.

Meursault is a wine with a luminous gold colour, intense fragrance and refined flavours. It is full bodied without being heavy, with a long lasting finish.

Meursault can be served alone as an aperitif with smoked salmon. At dinner, Meursault is recommended with delicate fish dishes, lobster, foie gras or even poultry, as well as fresh goat cheese.

4/5

Wine and friends always pairs very well .
Typical opacity of a Joseph Drouhin. Notes of white fruits such as apples. A nice woody flavour.
I had it with a good cheese.

4/5

I liked sharing this wine with someone special.
A Chardonnay with a very dull colour. As soon as I smelled it, I noticed the white flowers scent. Taste of blackberries and wild fruits.
A 2014 is perfect with boiled shrimp.

As soon as I smelled it, I noticed the white flowers scent. Flashy flavours of red fruits.
A very good wine.
