Arnaud Baillot Meursault Blanc 2020
Arnaud Baillot Meursault opens with a beautifully aromatic nose of honey, linden flowers, hazelnut butter, chamomile and just a hint of hawthorn. Beautiful gold colour, silky and round on the palate. Flavours of yellow plum and gingerbread linger long into the finish.
100% Chardonnay. The fruit comes from organic vineyards in Meursault, which has a continental climate with slightly higher temperatures and rainfall. Meursault's vineyards are the most extensive of the Cote de Beaune, where approximately 30% are premier crus and 70% are village vineyards.
Manual harvesting through parcel-by-parcel ripeness monitoring and with grape sorting. Traditional fermentation in oak barrels. The wine then ages in Burgundy Oak for 12 months, 25% new oak. No filtering before bottling.
