We first tasted andamp; offered the beautiful wines from Domaine Tessier in the 2011 vintage and have increasingly come to rely on this address as one of our most vital sources for serious white Burgundy. Arnaud Tessier has made immense strides at his family domaine since taking the reigns in 2005 to elevate the property into the gem that it has become today. The wines across the range here display a perfect balance of power and nerve, with the complexity and depth you'd expect from the very best producers. The wines are charming and give immense pleasure even in their youth, but they are neither bulky nor relaxed in character. This sort of poise is the epitome of great Meursault, and the and#39;16 vintage chez Tessierandnbsp;looks to have captured their very best qualities in vivid detail. From a parcel of mostly older vines - many planted in the early 50and#39;s - that sits directly next to Genevrieres. This is the most precocious of the 1erandnbsp;crus here, with more muscle and effusive aromatics.
