Tasting notes for the Meursault 1er Cru "La Goutte d'Or" 2005 (Magnum) - Arnaud Ente

  • EYE: Its robe is a deep and intense golden yellow. The color is vibrant and reflects its age and maturity.
  • NOSE: This wine exudes complex and captivating aromas. Notes of yellow-fleshed fruits such as peach and apricot intertwine with subtle hints of citrus and exotic fruits. Delicate nuances of fresh butter, vanilla, and roasted hazelnuts blend harmoniously, offering richness and depth.
  • MOUTH: The Meursault reveals its full magnificence. Its texture is velvety and smooth, providing a sense of fullness and roundness. The fruity flavors are intense and persistent, with a dominant presence of ripe fruits and a delicate touch of honey. Subtle minerality brings freshness and complexity, while the finish is long, elegant, and slightly buttery.

 

In short: This magnum of Meursault 1er Cru "La Goutte d'Or" 2005 made by Arnaud Ente is an incredibly elegant and remarkably complex Burgundy wine. Its golden robe, enchanting nose, and velvety palate make for an exceptional tasting experience. It pairs perfectly with noble fish dishes such as poached turbot in sauce or sole meunière. It also complements roasted poultry and soft cheeses. Thanks to its excellent aging potential, it can be cellared for another 5 to 10 years, or even longer, for further development. An ideal choice for enthusiasts of fine Meursault white wines.

An artist of the vineyard in Meursault

 

Elected "Man of the Year" by the Bettane & Desseauve wine guide in 2012, Arnaud Ente still deserves the title. According to critic Michel Bettane, his white wines are "the most advanced [...] in the entire world when it comes to Chardonnay." The winemaker, who was also nicknamed the Rising Star of Meursault for a few years, is now considered to be one of the greatest artists of the vineyard in the Côte de Beaune.

With the help of his wife Marie-Odile, his son Pierre, and his two employees, Arnaud Ente takes care of his 4.5 hectares of vineyard the way he would his garden. Although, you need to understand that the man is a true perfectionist (and an inspiration to his brother Benoît). He strives for balance, in all things. Arnaud Ente not only seeks to produce the purest wines possible, he is also constantly trying to find a fragile equilibrium between tension and texture. Acidity and volume.

The concept of precision is very close to his heart. Everything is adjusted and calibrated round the clock... from picking the grapes to pruning the vines. Furthermore, respecting the Burgundy terroir is a real duty for him. Which explains why the yields are extremely low. Of course, Arnaud Ente only uses organic methods in his vineyard (he is a proud recipient of the French "Agriculture Biologique" certification).
