Description

Narvaux is another of Meursault's highest vineyards, sitting above the 1er cru Les Genevrières. This comes from 0.10-hectares in a clos at the top of the vineyard (Narvaux Dessus) so it could be labelled Clos de Narvaux. This parcel is right next to Dominique Lafon's vines and was planted in 1975. The soils have plenty of limestone and also iron oxide, the latter giving the soil a reddish tinge. It's a beautifully managed vineyard, with all the work by hand without aid of a tractor, by a 76-year-old vigneron. The wine from here is round and textural - Clos de Narvaux has very shallow soils and a southerly aspect, which promote both low yields and excellent ripening. Yet the minerality is equally intense. There is also around 5% of Chardonnay Muscaté in the blend. It's a super vibrant wine packed with citrus and grapefruit and a precise, tapering finish.
