AOP Meursault

Domaine Lucien Muzard et Fils 2020

€1210 Flacon de 10cl

This Meursault’s lemon-green colour suggests a wine still in its youth. The nose, however, is rich and floral with white flower aromas like honeysuckle and acacia. It has a fruity side, too, with apple, peach and a touch of oak. The palate is off-dry, lively and full-bodied at the same time, offering beautiful fullness, and a lovely lingering finish with hints of sweet spices.

Winemaker

Claude et Hervé Muzard

The Muzard Vineyard belongs to a very old Santenay family where they have been winegrowers from father to son for nine generations (Jacques Muzard in 1645). Mr and Mrs Lucien Muzard structured the establishment in the 60s by renting vines at first and then bought them little by little. Claude and Hervé Muzard now operate the 16 acres of the family vineyard, spread out over different climates in Santenay, Chassagne Montrachet and Pommard. The overall production of the vineyard is 5% white wines.
