2018 Demougeot Bourgogne Blanc
The soil doesn't know! Bordered by the famed "Le Limozin" and "Les Charmes-Dessous" the vineyard producing this wonderful wine is completely within the borders of the Meursault commune. It is nurtured into excellence by Rodolphe Demougeot, who has been doing Burgundy right since he took over the family domaine in 1992.
This wine is sourced from a vineyard within the Meursault commune directly below Meursault “Le Limozin”, a village vineyard surrounded by top flight 1er Crus on three sides. Despite a vibration and body and texture of top 1er Cru on the right bank of the Serein, in Chablis, there is no doubt of the origin of this wine replete with aromas of citrus curd, nuts, flowers and minerals that speak the dialect of Meursault. As it is with his Bourgogne Rouge, Rodolphe consistently overshoots the pedigree of “Bourgogne” with this wine; to use the term “baby Meursault,” would not be a stretch.
The Chardonnay grapes are whole cluster pressed and the juice settled overnight before racking to barrel for a naturally occurring fermentation.
Aged in 90% old 228l and 350l oak barrels for one year, then racked into stainless steel tank for five to six months before bottling in the spring. It’s not fined but is lightly filtered. The first addition of sulfites is made before the bottling.
