    This wine comes from limestone derived soil on the Saint-Romain side of the appellation. It always has a zesty, grapefruity and citrus character, but has a chalky, stony depth at the same time. For drinking now to 2018.

    This is a superb example of village Meursault from six well placed lieux-dits (including les Clous and Narvaux) and old vines averaging 50 years old. It offers good weight on the attack, buttery, apricot fruit, with a balancing mineral character and silky finish. For drinking now to 2021.

    Tesson is invariably Fichet’s top and most long lived wine, and many of the growers believe it is well up to fine premier cru status.  Located above the village on a perfectly sloping hillside facing due east, with well balanced soil (30 to 40cm deep), combining a perfect blend of both limestone and clay, Jean-Philippe has three parcels of vines planted in 1945, 1965 and 1976. Aged in 16% new oak to 5yo for a year before 6 months in cuve, this wine is silky, precise, graceful with a beautiful play on the palate. Fichet’s Tesson ages extremely well, there is definitely no hint of premox, and from a vintage in which Jean-Philippe was particularly successful this wine shows exactly why white Burgundy retains its allure. For drinking now to 2019.
