Domaine Michel Juillot,

Premier Cru,

Clos des Barraults,

Mercurey, Burgundy, France, 2013

“Newly arrived in Cambodia, a wine from one of the best quality to price ratio region’s in Burgundy, from one of its very best producers -get in for some.”

Lemon colour with golden tints

The tight, perfumed aromas are complex -there are barrel notes of pan-fried butter, vanilla and roasted coconut with Chardonnay fruit characters of white peach, pineapple, hazelnut and citrus.

On the palate the wine shows signs of youth, a tight structure bridling an underlying opulence of fruit and power. There are lashings of oak trimmings: buttered toast, butterscotch, vanilla, roasted nuts and coconut with fruit notes of custard apple, white peach, melon and lemon. The wine finishes beautifully with fresh, zesty citrus notes and long, persistent minerals.

Just arrived for the first time in Cambodia the wine comes from one of Mercurey’s very best producers; here we have a really good quality, interesting, charming and eminently affordable Premier Cru white burgundy.
