2018 Les Clous
A 5th generation Burgundian domaine owns about 8ha in the Côte de Beaune across a variety of communes.
The domaine's vines are located in Trois Follots, located in the prolongation of 1er Cru Rugiens, on well draining clay-limestone soils with limestone scree. Sorted twice, 100% de-stemmed, indigenous yeasts, cuvaison lasts about 15 days with mostly pump-overs and very limited punch-downs. Aged in barrel (15 to 20% new) and bottled after 15 to 18 months. All cellar work follows the lunar calendar.
This Meursault has complex aromas of pear, lemon pie and hazelnut with subtle oak nuances, such as vanillin and baking spice. It is full-bodied and concentrated on the palate but not heavy thanks to its natural freshness.
