Meursault "VIEILLES VIGNES" 2005 - Domaine Guy Bocard
Big cozy village Meursault begins a production area of very fine white wines, occupying the southern part of the Côte de Beaune. The vineyard is spread by gentle slopes, between 230 and 360 meters. The eastern orientation strongly supports maximum sunlight. Located ten kilometers south of Beaune, Meursault marks the beginning of the great white wines of Burgundy. Chardonnay is the grape of choice for these powerful wines, opulent and subtle. Family Guy Bocard Domain is located in the center of Meursault. Guy Bocard and daughter produce a rich and very sweet wine, with that touch of minerality that makes great Meursault. Based in Meursault for several generations, the area is one of the traditional areas that do not seek to take advantage of a trend or another, but to offer wines that their match. The estate's wines are not always ideal for wine tasting in their youth, but after a few years of bottles are clearly distinguished by their complexity, finesse and homogeneity. Discover ideally after 7-10 years for villages and up to 15-20 years for first growths.
