Wines from Meursault are typified by aromas and flavors of ripe melon, hazelnut, and lemon custard, and tend to be broader and more textural than wines from neighboring villages. Aging in 15-20% percent small French oak barrels lends notes of toast and vanilla. White Burgundy, with its richness, texture, and toasted flavors pairs well with light fish and shellfish and can counterbalance cream-based sauces. Oak-aged Chardonnay from warmer climates lends itself well to grilled fish, starches, butter, and toasted nuts.

This white is elegant and lacy, featuring lime blossom, acacia and hazelnut accents, surrounding white peach and melon fruit. Harmonious and vibrant, builds to a long, citrus and spice-infused aftertaste. Drink now through 2025.

The 2018 Les Chevalieres has a fresh, perfumed bouquet with orange blossom, hints of fresh pear and nectarine. The palate is well balanced on the fresh opening, and nicely balanced, revealing hints of lychee on the quite saline finish.

Offering up pretty aromas of citrus oil and nutmeg, the 2018 Meursault Chevalières is medium-bodied, bright and incisive, with a delicate core of fruit, lively acids and a chalky finish. It's nicely made, but it doesn't display the concentration of the best years.
