Maison Harbour 2017 Meursault 1er Cru Blagny (750ml)
In 2012 Nicholas and Colleen Harbour are North Americans who decided to quit their jobs, move to France and follow their passion for wine by starting a winery in Savigny-lès-Beaune, a village in the heart of the Côte-d’Or, Burgundy. On arrival in Burgundy they attended the wine school in Beaune. Before graduating the couple had already established their winery, a small négociant vinificateur, which they called, Maison Harbour. Maison Harbour produces a selection of Grand Cru, 1er Cru and Village Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays from across Burgundy’s Côte de Nuits (Gevrey-Chambertin, Vosne-Romanée) and Côte de Beaune (Corton, Pommard, Savigny-les-Beaune, Meursault, Chassagne-Montrachet and Santenay).
Very limited production; only 2 barrels made. Bishop’s Cellar got their hands on 24 bottles! The wine expresses the depth and complexity Chardonnay grown in Meursault; lemon curd, white flowers, energetic on the palate with lots of concentration, focus and length.
The grapes are 100% de-stemmed, fermented with indigenous yeasts with minimal wine making intervention. Older oak barrels are used and fining and filtration if necessary.
