Christian Bellang is a well-regarded producer from the Meursault appellation in Burgundy, France, known for crafting wines of exceptional finesse and depth.

As expected from a classic Meursault, this wine is typically marked by its rich, full-bodied character and a beautiful balance of fruit and minerality.
The nose reveals a vibrant bouquet of ripe orchard fruits like apples and pears, layered with nuances of citrus zest, complemented by subtle undertones of honeysuckle and toasted hazelnuts.
On the palate, this Meursault showcases flavors of ripe stone fruits, lemon curd, and a hint of tropical fruits. The fruit character is beautifully counterbalanced by a vibrant acidity and a distinctive minerality, a testament to the limestone-rich soils of Meursault. As the wine evolves in the glass, more complex notes such as butter, almond, and baking spices may emerge, a result of the meticulous oak aging process.
The finish is typically long and persistent, leaving a lingering impression of the interplay between the wine's fruit, acid, and minerality. Given its depth and complexity, it pairs well with rich dishes, such as lobster, roast chicken, creamy pasta dishes, or even veal. Moreover, it has excellent aging potential, and its flavors will continue to develop and evolve over several years.
