Meursault 1er cru Les Gouttes d’Or 2017, Domaine Buisson-Battault
Region: Côte de Beaune, Burgundy
Production: Organic practising, hand harvested, natural yeasts
2017 is a brilliant vintage for white Burgundy and this demonstrates the energy, precision and classic nature of this year.
Goutte d’Or, which means drops of gold, is the furthest north of the top premier cru vineyards. The wines can be quite compact and sturdy, like Porusots, but with age reveal great complexity and nuance. This is drinking beautifully, even in youth and is fresh, chiselled with notes of fresh pâtisserie, wet stone and ripe citrus.
