Domaine Michel Lafarge Meursault Vendages Selectionnees 2020
|Region||France, Burgundy, Meursault|
|Brand||Domaine Michel Lafarge|
The 2020 Meursault "Vendange Sélectionée" comes from the oldest vines, 70 to 75 years old, in limestone soils. That limestone really comes through on the nose, more austere than the regular cuvée but conveying more energy. The palate is very well balanced with citrus peel, peach skin, apricot and light waxy notes, a judicious pinch of ginger enlivening the taut finish. This is very promising. Eight barrels produced.
This year, there was enough volume once again to produce a 2020 Meursault Vendanges Sélectionnées. Exhibiting aromas of pear, freshly baked bread and orange zest, it's medium to full-bodied, racy and incisive, with fine depth at the core and more cut and tension than the regular bottling.
