Philippe Chavy Meursault Blagny 1er Cru Sous le Dos d'Ane 2017
White wine. Burgundy, France. Biodynamic. 100% Chardonnay. This is the last vintage from a parcel of Meursault that is no longer under Chavy's purview. The name ”donkey’s back“ refers to the topography of this vineyard, which lies high above Puligny and Meursault. The soil is very stony, which conveys a bouquet of gunflint, followed by expressive aromas of lime marmalade and smoky overtones. The palate is broad and complex, with a powerful structure and a fine beam of acidity. Layers of yellow apple, grapefruit zest, pineapple, and a trace of oak.
