Phillipe Bouzereau Meursault Vieux Clos du Chateau de Citeaux Monopole 2016
It is at the foot of the vineyards of the old Chateau Clos de Citeaux that takes place this Domaine, in the heart of the village of Meursault. Philippe Bouzereau Jr. took over the Domaine to perpetuate the savoirfaire in the development of Grand Vins de Bourgogne. From AloxeCorton in the north, to Santenay in the south, through Beaune, AuxeyDuresses, Meursault and Puligny-Montrachet, a multitude of small tasting a great diversity of soils.
Its aromatic power and exceptional balance between fat and acidity make it an aristocrat among burgundies. Unsurprisingly, it has a natural affinity with noble and fine-textured fish or meat, which it can match without overpowering. It performs a similar feat with joints of veal or poultry in white sauce, which are rendered sublime by the wine’s unctuous texture and long, distinguished acidity. Still better are grilled lobster, crawfish, or king prawns in sauce - dishes whose aromatic intensity and crisp texture match the lively and supple balance of the wine. Even blue cheeses and foie gras take to it immediately.
Serving temperature: 12 to 14°C.
