Arthur Barolet Meursault 2017
In 1830, Arthur Barolet founded a small family business in Beaune, the capital of Burgundy. At first Barolet wines rarely found themselves in any export markets and were only known by a small number of connoisseurs. His grandson, also known as Arthur, left medicine and Paris in 1920, to take care of the family business. Today, the quality and the tradition established by the former owners continues in the 19th-century cellars of the Savigny-lès-Beaune based Domaine.
The white wines of this part of Burgundy come from Chardonnay grapes grown in rough, rocky soil. They are deliciously dry wines, rich and full of the flavors of butter, nuts, and spices, with minerally overtones.
