Jean Philippe Fichet Meursault Chevalieres 2010
100% Chardonnay. A producer that would be as famous as Leflaive or Coche Dury if they owned more famous vineyards. Fichet makes exquisite wines of elegance and precision. More than any of his peers, Fichet is testing the limits of transparency, to find the very soul of Meursault’s terroirs. It was Meursault’s destiny to have its soils revealed in this way: their intense stoniness is magnified by an exceptionally low water table, forcing the vines’ roots deep underground. The wines that Jean-Philippe Fichet is making today have few rivals for their class in Burgundy, and they could be unmatched in their transparency and expressiveness.
