Sylvain Dussorts Meursault is a wine of great concentration and energy. It is aged on its lees in barrel for between 12 and 14 months before blending and bottling. It's quite richly textured, but there is a clean citrus acidity that runs through the wine keeping it fresh and vibrant. There is no doubt it will continue to develop and soften over time, but you'll be hard puched to keep your hands off it now.
Sylvain Dussort comes from a long line of winemakers and coopers based in Meursault. He took over the estate in 1982 with his wife and over the years has expanded the estate with the acquisition of new vineyards as well as the modernisation and enlargement of the winery buildings. The estate now totals 6.5 hectares. Sylvain practices lutte raisonnée across his vineyards which are all hand harvested. He harvests early looking for elegant, mineral, terroir driven wines which will age at least 4-6 years in bottle. The wines are fermented using indigenous yeasts and vinified either in stainless steel tanks or most often in oak barrels. The wines are aged on their lees for between 12 and 18 months.
