This Meursault 1er Cru Poruzot-Dessus is rich and complex.

Domaine Tessier is a rising star of Meursault’s producers. The Domaine is making refined and complex Chardonnays from the village’s best located vineyards. The Meursault 1er Cru “Le Poruzot-Dessus” is ideally located between the 1er Cru “Les Genevrières” and the 1er Cru “Les Bouchères”.

The nose develops complex flavours of white flowers, white peach, brioche and fresh coffee beans. The taste is structured with a round attack and a rich mid palate. It can be paired with seafood, white meat and cheeses.

You can drink it now by decanting 45 minutes before serving, or you can cellar it for eight to ten years. 100% Chardonnay.

"This Meursault 1er Cru “Le Poruzot-Dessus” is showing a beautiful richness and structure. It is a complex wine that would benefit from a few years of cellaring. This wine will show you why Meursault is considered to be producing the some of the best Chardonnays in the world!"

At Domaine Tessier, Catherine and Arnaud grow their vineyards organically. They ensure their vines are growing concentrated, ripe and healthy grapes. They employ only light ploughings, leave long branches on the vines and optimize the airflow through the canopy by removing leaves prior to harvest. After the hand harvest, grapes are pressed in a gentle pneumatic press. The juice is pumped into stainless steel vats and undergoes alcoholic fermentation. The process is as natural as possible and without introduction of external yeasts. The maturation is done in French oak barrels for twelve months – with only a few new oak barrels introduced – to preserve the beautiful fresh flavour of the wine and bring extra weight and complexity.
