Sylvain Dussort comes from a long line of winemakers and coopers based in Meursault. He took over the estate in 1982 with his wife and over the years has expanded the estate with the aquisition of new vineyards as well as the modernisation and enlargement of the winery buildings. The estate now totals 6.5 hectares, half of which is Bourgogne Blanc, the wine that Sylvain takes the most pride in.
Sylvain Dussort Bourgogne Blanc Cuvee des Ormes 2016
On the nose, aromatic notes of white fruit and flowers meet a flinty mineral tone. The palate is one of richness thanks to the lees contact, white fruit flavours come through in abundance with notes of apple, pear and quince leading to a buttery creaminess. Firm mineral notes and fresh zesty acidity balance the finish nicely.
The ‘Cuvee des Ormes’ is made using fruit grown in three Meursault based vineyards and comes from vines aging 35-60 years old. The wine undergoes a period of 12 months ageing in barrel on its lees prior to bottling.
