Domaine Roux Père & Fils Meursault Vieilles Vignes AOC

Produced from old vines with deep roots in soil of Jurassic origin rich in marl and limestone in the historic Meursault appellation. The nose shows pungent aromas of ripe fruit, toasted nuts, elegant florals, and minerals. Rich and creamy on the palate with a long structured finish, this wine rewards extensive cellaring. This wine is fermented on the lees in French oak barrels, followed by an extensive aging period of more than one year.

A lean, racy style, with citrus, apple, light spice and earth flavors. This is rich midpalate, tightening up on the long finish. Drink now through 2020.

Slow to show its quality, with a little aeration this becomes a superripe wine, its wood element dominated by the intense tropical fruits. There is some balancing restraint in the citrus character, along with the acidity. Enjoy now.
