Description

Closer to Limozin than Charmes in terms of its terroir. Francois has 1ha 38ares of this fine 1er Cru, the furthest north in Meursault. The Buisson Battault vines are in the top part of the vineyard, whee the porrest soil gives wines with a distinct mineral spine. The 2018 has a singular nose – blue flowers and dried herbs amongst the ripe citrus fruits. Glasslike texture, very cool and calm, tense yet effortlessly so. Zesty, peachy fruit leads to a racy, salty finish. Quite steely on the finish, structured.
