This ancient vineyard in the middle of Meursault, near the fire station and in the vicinity of Charonns, Rougeot and Chevalieres, is enclosed by a stone wall over 2 metres hig. It is divided into two sections: 1ha of Bourgogne in (slightly) hard rock and 1.7ha as appellation Meursault Villages. The gentle slope and the maturing vines (2001) are responsible for the consistency, typicity and quality. For the Burgundy nerds, the satellite view on Google Maps shows the walled site and Grivault cellar very clearly. This is always an incredibly great wine, akin to a ripe and deeply flavoured Villages wine. Few Bourgogne Blancs have this strong sense of place. The 2020 rendition of this wine is simply classic and rich and powerful - superbly intense with stunning acidity and minerality to keep everything in balance. A rare example of a wine of "Villages" quality, intensity, and terroir. It comes from a plot within the Clos that was not planted at the time of the original classification, but there are submissions in place to have it elevated.
Cheers, Randall
