Meursault "Gruyaches" Jean Philippe Fichet 2017
Jean-Philippe Fichet, Meursault
Jean-Philippe is surely one of the hardest working producers in Burgundy. His manicured vineyards produce great quality fruit and with his years of experience, he is making classic but refined white Burgundies with great terroir definition. The Domaine has been producing truly exceptional wines particularly in the last few years with many well deserved accolades.
A more discreet nose, but faintly spiced ginger-cake all the same. Large, with joyous acidity, just edged with a little sucrosity, but lithe and energetic. Fine direct flavour here. Just a hint of saline minerality in what turns out to be (yet again) a brilliant Meursault-flavoured finish.
Grape: 100% Chardonnay
