Meursault is a white wine village. There are reds, but very few, and they often take the names of other villages like Volnay and Blagny. Despite its blessed vineyard sites and many talented winemakers, Meursault has no Grand Crus. Nonetheless, the top Premier Crus could make a strong case for Grand Cru status. Additionally, many of Meursault’s village level lieux-dits clearly merit Premier Cru status. These Chardonnay share a distinct nuttiness, especially hazelnut, and are broad and rich on the palate.
