Meursault 1er Cru 'Les Gouttes d'Or' - 2017

Limited to 5.33ha, "Goutte d'Or" is the smallest of the 1er Cru sites that is cultivated by Domaine Jean-Michel Gaunoux. Translated as "drops of gold", "Goutte d'Or" sits at a high elevation, that's on par with "Perrieres" and "Genevrieres", but here, the soil is clay heavy with a limestone base, where the vines take root on slopes that face east. Golden color with intense aromas of honey, lime, hazelnut butter and sometimes chamomile and hawthorn. Their silky and round taste enchants the amateur with a long finish reminiscent of plums and yellow bread spices. (
