In my latest “Wine Wednesdays” evening with Ginsberg+Chan, I was very excited to take the wheel and host the event to a group of industry colleagues. This week: Meursault.
In Burgundy’s Chardonnay country, the Cote de Beaune, the Meursault commune has around 1,000 acres under vine. Often in the shadow of its illustrious neighbour to the southwest, Puligny-Montrachet, it still produces wines of the highest quality. No Grand Crus reside here, but 19 Premier Crus and a plethora of brilliant generic Villages wines are made – and it is seven of these we are going to try:
- 2013 Anne Boisson Meursault Sous La Velle
- 2013 Pierre Boisson Meursault
- 2013 Bernard Boisson Vadot Meursault Grands Charrons
- 2014 Henri Boillot Meursault
- 2012 Arnaud Ente Meursault
- 2012 Roulot Meursault
- 2011 Philippe Pacalet Meursault
In previous tastings, I’d usually be the guy at the other end of the table helping out Roberto Gallotto, the master host. For this one though I had the responsibility of navigating the crowd through the tasting. It was a lot of fun, and the wines were all excellent, but while on speaking duties I neglected to take sufficient notes…so this time I’ll just present a photobook of the evening!
