The Chateau de Citeaux in Meursault is home to some of the most prestigious appellations of the Cote de Beaune, at different levels of the Burgundian Hierarchy :Meursault Les Charmes, Perrieres, Genevrieres, Puligny-Montrachet Champs Gains, Chassagne-Montrachet Pasquelles...
Like many other vignerons, Philippe Bouzereau also offers more affordable options as an introduction to Burgundian climats and even those can be traced back to specific sites or "Lieux-Dits". The Bourgogne Chardonnay usually comes from "Les Pellans", a vineyard located just below the premier Cru "les Charmes". However, with the sought after 2009 vintage, the preorders for the Bourgogne were such that the estate used their Auxey-Duresses Blanc to fulfill their importers orders.
This wine was barrel fermented and matured with light batonnage, practises commonly seen in Burgundy's top level wines, resulting in a richness that makes this Bourgogne one of the top buys in its category.
Bright straw colour with pale straw hue. The nose displays good intensity with lifted top notes of white peach followed by some cashew, light honeycomb and spicy oak. Medium weight the palate displays good richness and mouthfeel for a Bourgogne whilst still retaining a sense of freshness. Flavours of white peach and citrus are supported by spicy oak with some cashew and almond like characters on the back palate. Clean dry finish. Medium to long cashew, roast almond, nougat and spice aftertaste.
Drink over the next 3-4 years (2012-2016).
