A Complex White Burgundy - 2010 Xavier Monnot Meursault Les Chevalières
The 2010 Mersault has a pale yellow-gold color and is translucent in the glass. The nose has the spicy aroma of American oak but also smells of grass, oil, and honey. The aroma has great complexity and adds to the enjoyment of the wine's taste. The wine has an excellent mid-palate and tastes acidic, making your mouth water for more. The finish of the wine is long and gives one pause. It is definitely a wine that encourages one to sip again and again to discern all the flavors that lie within. Pair this wine with salmon, lobster, or lasagna. It will also lend itself to a more tender cut of beef such as filet mignon.
