Timeless but elusive great Burgundy reds and whites are harder to find than ever.
Château de Meursault’s flagship Meursault Les Charmes-Dessus Premier Cru 2014 is aptly named after the lauded Charmes- Dessus parcel. Fortyyear- old Chardonnay vines reach deep into the Perrières limestone soils for characteristic mineral purity. Add to that, the grapes are handpicked, and all parcels are pressed, vinified and aged separately. Full-bodied and opulent on the senses, yet with elegant suppleness that mark the best Burgundies, this is a wine to enjoy indulgently, over lobster soufflé or grilled mullet. $159.80 from The Vintage Wine Club
