Jean-Philippe Fichet is based in Meursault in the Cote de Beaune region of Burgundy. It lies south of the town of Beaune itself, sandwiched between the vineyards of Pommard and Puligny-Montrachet. He makes understated, unflashy wines that are not usually aged in new oak, which would lend a toastier, richer note to the wine. The wine is made from grapes of four different parcels of vines: Les Narvaux and Les Clous which tend to produce elegant wines, with a riper, fuller component from Le Limozin and Les Criots.
Made from Burgundy’s key white grape, Chardonnay. It’s medium-bodied with clear, fresh lemon and tangerine notes and a hint of herbs such as thyme and verbena. It’s an elegant, midweight style of Burgundy with refreshing acidity, and a crisp, long, citrus finish. A great match for lighter chicken dishes, grilled fish and summer salads.
