AWARDS

A "Coup de Cœur" cuvée rated 94/100 by our Committee!

Wine:

Nestled next to the prestigious terroir of Goutte d’Or, the 2021 white Meursault Les Grands Charrons is an outstanding parcel wine from Meursault that has gained reputation thanks to prestigious domains, notably Domaine Michel Bouzereau, which we follow each year. This 2021 vintage features fresh almond notes, a delicate floral touch, and a finely toasted character that is impeccably managed. The palate is fleshy, precise, and of good density, releasing a fresh juice where the limestone is prominently felt, complemented by subtle oak. A magnificent bottle that will still hold for another decade. A favorite of the Committee, rated 94/100.

Elevated by a new generation since 2013, Domaine Roux Père & Fils is swiftly ascending the ladder of success. Their impressive 70-hectare vineyard, spread across 50 distinct climates from the Côte d'Or to the Mâconnais, forms an enviable heritage. Today, it's meticulously managed, down to the finest detail, by the fresh team in charge.

The result is an impeccable array of wines that truly echo their respective terroirs. Earning high scores across the board, these wines have captivated global enthusiasts but remain relatively undiscovered in France.
