Jean Claude Boisset Mersault Le Limozin 2018
The color is golden yellow. The nose will seduce you with its aromas of lemon, acacia, associated with subtly honeyed and smoky notes. On the palate, the wine is charming and very elegant!
With nearly 400 ha of vines Meursault stands out as one of Burgundy’s key appellations. Its vineyards almost always face east and cover gentle slopes. From among the approximately thirty vineyards that enjoy a prime location on the slope, some are known for their exceptional white “Villages” wines, such as Le Limozin which is a fine example with wines that often boast more substance than a Premier Cru.
"Limozin" is a very good example because it reveals as much, if not more, consistency than a Premier Cru. It is also nestled between two prestigious climates classified as premier cru "Les Genevrières" and "Les Charmes".
As is often the case in Burgundy, the vineyard names often refer to a geographical feature. “Limozin” refers to a stream that once flowed alongside the vineyard.
