2018 Albert Bichot "Domaine du Pavillon" Meursault
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. Aerial photos of the village town hall’s multi-coloured varnished roof tiles are world famous.
The 2018 Bichot white Meursault is the product of an epic, hot vintage. There are whispers that 2018 might right the legendary 1947 vintage. It certainly reflects a string of hot vintages and is the hottest since 2003. This is classic but powerful Meursault, aromatic, dense and luxurious, without being flabby. This will reward cellaring for 3-5 years if you have the patience to wait, but it's quite delicious now.
