Dom. Theulot-Juillot 2009 Mercurey 1er Cru Blanc 'Les Saumonts'
Jean-Claude Theulot makes rather little white wine from a handful of small plots, but he lavishes a degree of care on them that is repaid with wines like this that demonstrate exceptional purity, unfussiness and salinity, with an unerring sense of just how much oak the fruit can comfortably live with. If Montrachet is a Tchaikovsky symphony then this is a Haydn string quartet – but a great one!
