Albert Bichot Domaine du Pavillon Meursault Blanc 2020, Burgundy, France

Domaine du Pavillon is located south of Pommard, in the Côte de Beaune. The vineyards, winery, cellar, and 18th-century manor are surrounded by a wall. Just as at Domaine du Clos Frantin in Nuits-Saint-Georges, we practice organic viticulture with ongoing concern for the respect of the complex balances found in nature. Located in the heart of the Côte de Beaune, Meursault is one of the flagship villages and among the most reputed in Burgundy. In fact, Meursault is often referred to as the capital of Burgundy’s great whites. “Our white Meursault is bright, luminous straw yellow in color. The nose boasts a discrete touch of toast followed by elegant floral notes underpinned by fruity, light plum and pear aromas. The palate is powerful, well balanced and dense, with delicious flavors of brioche. The finish is long and very aromatic.” Aged in oak barrels (100%), 20% new, for 12-15 months.
