Meursault 1er Cru “Le Porusot”

Meursault 1er Cru “Le Porusot” bottle

With our "Cuvée Signature" wines, you enter the world of premium Burgundy wines proudly signed by Bouchard Aîné & Fils. Characteristic features of these wines include year-round monitoring of individual vineyards, low yields and limited bottling runs. A showcase for Bouchard Aîne & Fils, Cuvée Signature is the ultimate expression of our style and know-how. These “micro-cuvées” express the richness of the finest terroirs of Burgundy in all their intensity and finesse.

The village of Meursault is located at the heart of the Côte de Beaune's “golden triangle”, just north of Puligny-Montrachet. This is where some of the finest Chardonnays in the world come from. Those of our Premier Cru “Le Porusot” (which meant “worn stone” in Old French) cover 28.2 acres.

This negociant firm, owned by the Boisset family since 1993, produced an impressively fresh Meursault Porusot in 2015. Some of our tasters objected to the oak influence, which one found sawdusty, while others found it appropriately nutty, with baking-spice flavors to accent the apple and fennel flavors. The texture is round and sapid, making this a wine for roast veal.
  • Winemaking

    Fermented in wooden vats and matured in oak barrels for 12 months (30% new oak).

  • Nose

    A refined and powerful mineral nose, with hints of white flowers.

  • Palate

    Following a bold attack, but quite silky, the palate opens up to buttery flavors and toasted notes. A nice finish on flinty notes.
