"En Luraule" is a lieu-dit (vineyard) that butts up against the 1er Cru vineyard "Goutte d'Or" in Meursault.  Goutte d'Or Meursaults fetch in excess of $175 per bottle. 

If the En Laurale vineyard was just a few more feet to the left (nay a few inches) then this majestic Meursault would be designated 1er Cru as well and fetch a similar price tag! 

"From a small parcel that touches the premier cru Goutte d’Or, the 2017 Meursault En Luraule reveals a bright bouquet of Anjou pear, spring flowers, white currant and citrus oil. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, fleshy and textural, with tangy acids and a mouthwateringly saline finish."  Wine Advocate

A Classic White Burgundy Vintage

The 2017 Burgundies are some of the best Chardonnays in years.  2017 is a classic vintage reminiscent of the outstanding 2004's. These wines offer, "great quality and charm." Vinous

And, this wine in particular?  

We love it! This is a classic Meursault; the Chardonnay exudes exotic notes of lemon rind, citrus and hazelnut.  A bone-dry, chalky finish complements the richness and volume of fruit.  It is layered, delicious, and light on its feet.  

"I like the verve." Burghound

Not Premier Cru?  

You could have fooled us!
