Meursault Premier Cru Wine
Meursault Premier Cru wines are those produced under the strictest conditions of the Meursault appellation, from grapes grown within officially classified Premier Cru vineyards. These wines are permitted state the words Premier Cru on their labels and to append their official climat name to that of the commune in the appellation title.
Meursault itself is a large village in the Cote de Beaune sub-region of Burgundy, whose Premier Cru wines are held in very high regard in the wine world. In fact, it is Meursault’s reliably high quality Premier Cru wines which are largely responsible for the commune’s good reputation.
The most famous of Meursault’s Premier Cru vineyards are located at the southern end of the commune; the Charmes, Perrieres and Genevrieres sites. These sites are located on limestone slopes facing between south and south-east, thus capitalizing on the ripening potential of the morning and early afternoon sunshine during the growing season. They are contiguous with the equally well regarded Premier Cru vineyards of Meursault’s southern neighbor Puligny-Montrachet. These vineyards produce the commune’s finest wines, which are renowned for being among the richer, more full-bodied Burgundy whites. Meursault tasting notes commonly cite notes of butter, almonds and grilled hazelnuts alongside the finer citrus fruit and mineral elements. Some of the complexity and ageing potential of these wines is due to the fact that a lot of Meursault white is matured in oak barrels for slightly longer than whites from other communes.
Meursault Premier Cru wines are almost entirely white wines made from Chardonnay grapes, with less than five percent accounted for by Pinot Noir-based red wines. In fact, red wines from Premier Cru vineyards at the northern end of the commune are actually produced under the appellation of Meursault’s northern neighbor, Volnay. These vineyards all fall under the Volnay Santenots title for their red wines, but the Meursault Santenots Blancs, Santenots du Milieu and Les Plures titles for their whites.
Located on the slopes of the Cote d’Or escarpment, Meursault’s vineyards are blessed with classic Burgundy terroir. Limestone substrata, poor topsoils and a high proportion of stones make for excellent vine-growing country. The village occupies a site at the entrance to the Saint-Romain valley, a hiatus in the Cote d’Or, which leads to a variety of orientations in the local hillsides, from due south through due east. This variation is just one contributing factor in the variation of styles in Meursault wines.
In addition to its official Premier Crus, the commune has a number of well-respected lieu-dit vineyards, which do not qualify for the Premier Cru title but which are known as a source of high quality grapes. Promotion to Premier Cru status is by no means impossible for these sites, and classification reviews are becoming more frequent. The last review of Meursault’s vineyard status was in late 2001.
