Domaine Sylvain Dussort
Domaine Dussort is a small family domaine based in Meursault. Sylvain Dussort took over 20 years ago and started farming the estates 30 acres with minimal intervention in order to let the vines express the true character of each vineyard site. Each wine is treated differently depending upon the vintage and the terroir. In the cellar only native yeasts are used for the vinification. Aging takes place with extended lees contact but with no batonnage. The objective in doing so is to impart richness without compromising the particularities and true character of each wine. The production at Dussort is miniscule, even by Burgundian standards.
Sylvain Dussort "Cuvée des Ormes" Bourgogne Blanc 2013
Vinified from 50 year old vines right below the two Meursault lieu-dits of En l’Ormeau and Les Pellans. Extended lees contact imparts richness to the wine, however as batonnage is eschewed, it maintains a firm mineral spine .
