In a nutshell: A classic and elegant Meursault from the heart of the Côte de Beaune.
The lowdown: With usage of new oak limited to 25% none of the fresh purity is masked from this nicely restained wine. To add to the elegant, Meursault mineral backbone and excellent citrus freshness it has a good balance and nicely padded body. It's an immensely pleasurable wine to drink, but will develop further complexity and character over the next year or so.
When to drink: Poached halibut, roast chicken, or pork fillets are examples of good food matches here.
Based in the village of Meursault in the heart of Burgundy's Côte de Beaune, Domaine Berthelemot is the result of the merging of the estates of Jean Garaudet and Yves Darviot in 2006.
While a relatively young estate their vineyards are mature and well established in the appellations of Beaune, Pommard, Monthélie and Meursault. Currently under the guidance of founder Brigitte Berthelemot and her winemaker Marc Cugney the domaine has been quietly carving out an enviable reputation for good value wines from these exclusive parts of Burgundy.
