Henri de Villamont, Meursault

£62.11
Occupying an impressive nineteenth-century building in Savigny-Lès-Beaune, Henri de Villamont is a medium-sized producer that combines an enviable domaine (they are particularly strong in Chambolle-Musigny) with a meticulously sourced négociant range. The cuverie was updated with the latest equipment less than ten years ago, and underneath there is ample storage for barrels in the beautiful double-height cellar. These features give the winemaker flexibility and precision, resulting in excellent expression of the various terroirs on offer. These include some particularly well-sited vineyards: Auxey-Duresses Les Hautés borders Meursault Vireuils, for example, while Chambolle-Musigny Les Baudes lies just below Bonnes-Mares. In each case, because the former is so much less famous, the value for money is exceptional.

2015 vintage. The duration of maturing is different each year but on average it is 13 months and use 33% new oak barrels. Bright pale golden robe with green hues. On the nose, it is fresh, elegant, complex and develops fruity notes of fresh hazelnut, white peach, gooseberry and floral notes such as narcissus and hyacinth. On the palate, a rich and fat wine, with a nutty and delicious flavor: the balance between unctuous and freshness, declining all the registers of silk. Long and structured."

Tasting Note:
A complex nose with white flowers, toast bread and fresh nut with lowers and fruits like white peach on the palate.
