The Meursault Santenots Premier Crus 2011 from Domaine Jacques Prieur is the product of a parcel of vines situated in the town of Mersault, with eastern exposure and a beautiful terroir, defined by rich soil. Situated at the base of a hill, this 100% Chardonnay gets the perfect balance of earth and stone that promotes the maturity and minerality of the grapes. With silver-grey highlights, the green-gold robe gives way to a defined and expressive nose. The aromatic bouquet is complex with floral acacia notes and fresh herbs - mint and fern - that enhance lovely notes of anise. The palate is tasty and crisp with touches of pralines, brioche and acidity. The Meursault Santenots Premier Crus 2011 from Domaine Jacques Prieur is aged in oak barrels for 20 months to encourage the lovely complexity.
