A bit nutty

Etienne de Montille took over wine making duties at the Château for the 2002 vintage. There was an immediate rise in quality.

It is a bright and sunny day here in London and we are winning in the cricket. I couldn’t ask for a nicer drink.

Meursault Premier Cru les Perrieres 2002, Château de Puligny-Montrachet

The nose shows a good honey and nuts character. It is really mineral. There is some oak there, but it is gently oaky and perfectly in balance with the fruit and nuttiness. The palate is lively with acidity and fruit, but very harmonious. The fruit is really lovely, as is the concentration. There is a great long finish to this of nuttiness, fruit and minerality. This is really quite lovely. A great drink for a summer’s day. Excellent.
