Meursault "Les Corbins" 2009, Bitouzet-Prieur
Whilst the Burgoblog tasting team is no stranger to morning tastings, the 9am start in the Bitouzet-Prieur cellar at 9am was a first. On y était, pile. François Bitouzet who manages the wine making was hosting us. The domaine has 5 hectares of chardonnay among then this Meursault with a lemon and apricot nose which is still slightly closed. Just a hint of green gauge (prunus domestica italica) originally developed in Moissac, France. Really good green apple and ripe green gauge flavours a soupçon of the 20% new oak. Will be drinking perfectly in 2013 since it is from a flattering terroir. A very good Meursault.
