Wines from Meursault are typified by aromas and flavors of ripe melon, hazelnut, and lemon custard, and tend to be broader and more textural than wines from neighboring villages. Aging in 15-20% percent small French oak barrels lends notes of toast and vanilla. Food Pairing: White Burgundy, with its richness, texture, and toasted flavors pairs well with light fish and shellfish and can counterbalance cream-based sauces. Oak-aged Chardonnay from warmer climates lends itself well to grilled fish, starches, butter, and toasted nuts.

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Bourgogne Chardonnay les Grandes Coutures matured in 15% new oak and has a slightly smudged bouquet that needs to demonstrate more clarity. The palate is smooth and lightly honeyed, richer than the 2014 as you would expect, if missing a little tension on the finish. Drink this over the next couple of years.
