Domaine Changarnier Meursault Malpoiriers 2021
Particularly fine Meursault from a vineyard near Clos de la Barre. A layer of dark clay on pure chalk, planted with 60-year-old vines. The wine is raised in a new 500l Stockinger barrel and this gives a nuanced, very pure wine with a shimmering, intense rich but balanced flavour and long complex finish, really quite beautiful!
Bourgogne Aujourd’hui: “Arômes frais, précis, à dominante agrumes… Bouche pure, avec un bel équilibre entre gras, vivacité et une bonne longueur.”
Inside Burgundy: “This is an impressive domaine which is continuing to invest so as to improve further. They are adding further vineyards in Monthelie and Pommard, with additional winery and cellar space. They have been certified organic since 2019 with some biodynamic practices in place.“
“Still a pale colour but with clearly riper aromatics, blossom and a light fresh apricot touch. Mostly Stockinger wood. A blunt clay-based richness to the nose. Plenty of weight though, a broad-shouldered wine with a good balance between fruit oak and acidity to finish. Lengthens nicely after the blunter beginning. Quite typical Meursault though.” *** 89/100
