Arnaud Tessier

Arnaud Tessier is één van de nieuwe talenten op het gebied van witte Bourgognes. Vanaf de oogst 2006 maakt Tessier samen met zijn vrouw Catherine, wijnen op het 7,5 hectare grote familiedomein. De familie beschikt over diverse zeer fraai gelegen percelen wijngaard, allen gelegen binnen de gemeente Meursault. Na het overlijden van zijn vader in 2005 neemt Arnaud de leiding op zich. In tegenstelling tot zijn vader gaat Arnaud zelf de wijn opvoeden en bottelen. In het begin waren dit nog maar enkele vaatjes en verkocht Arnaud het grootste deel van zijn druiven aan collega’s. Uit de lijst met namen van zijn afnemers (Boillot, Colin-Morey, Sauzet, Meo-Camuzet) blijkt eens te meer de bijzondere kwaliteit van Tessier zijn druivenmateriaal. Inmiddels is hier verandering in gekomen. Afgelopen jaar zijn de kelders verbouwd en fors uitgebreid zodat vanaf oogstjaar 2017 voldoende ruimte is om alles zelf te vinifiëren. Arnaud en Catherine zijn dagelijks in de wijngaarden te vinden en maken hier lange dagen. Arnaud is een absolute perfectionist. De stokken worden streng teruggesnoeid, de gronden worden geploegd en chemische bestrijdingsmiddelen zijn uit den boze. In de kelder vergisten en rijpen de wijnen op één en twee jaar oude vaatjes. Na een rijping van zo’n 14 maanden gaat de wijn nog een paar maanden op cuve alvorens te worden gebotteld. De stijl van de wijnen is zeer puur en transparant waardoor de verschillende terroirs goed tot hun recht komen. Het is duidelijk dat Tessier alles in huis heeft om een ster te worden. De jaargang 2016 is hier uitzonderlijk geslaagd. Neal Martin: ‘Young Arnaud Tessier, son of the late Michel, looks set to be a major talent if these splendid little gems are anything to go by.’ Tim Atkin: ‘Arnaud Tessier is definitely a name to watch in Meursault, making wines that combine fruit density with minerality and stylish oak.’ Steen Öhman: ‘The producer mix of the appellation always strikes me as odd, as the balance between known and hyped is slightly bizarre. We have Coche-Dury, Lafon and Roulot as the hyped producers, with Arnaud Enté as the fourth wheel in this group. There is nothing wrong about being hyped, but it sometimes seems strange that other producers that produce very high quality wines year after year – aren’t receiving the same attention and demand as the three top producers.I do love and admire the wines from both Coche-Dury and Roulot, but somehow I struggle to see that producers like Antoine Jobard, Arnaud Tessier – just to mention two – are not mentioned in connection with the four mentioned above. Arnaud Enté do make fine Meursaults, but somehow lack a top terroirs – with the lovely Goutte d’Or being the top wine in Meursault. And furthermore I do think that several producers match and surpass Lafon on a vineyard like Meursault Charmes – just take Tessier. To widen the perspective I have for a long time been eager to visit Domaine Arnaud Tessier, as I really enjoy the wines – and think Tessier do challenge and belong in the group of top producers mentioned above.

  1. Bourgogne "Champ Perrier" | Arnaud Tessier

    Öhman: – is from a vineyard located in Puligny-Montrachet near Meursault. This is always a real treat with it’s energetic mineral impression – a wine that can match many village wines. The 2016 edition is intense and vibrant with a lovely verve and energy from the fine acidity of the vintage. The nose is brimming with fruit – quite aromatic for the level – indicating fine concentration – lovely mineral expression in the Bouquet with a touch of citrus (grape). On the palate fine white and yellow orchard fruits – serious for this level offering true complexity – with lovely depth and a long mineral driven finish. Deserve cellaring – but hard to keep the hands of these wines to give them a proper ageing. ‘’ Lees verder

  2. Meursault "Casse-Têtes" | Arnaud Tessier

    Öhman; ‘The Meursault Les Casse Têtes is one of my favourite village wines from Meursault – terroir located above the village – a mineral driven wine with a fine intensity. The nose is offering quite generous fruit – brought forward by a quite intense mineral note. Lovely generosity paired with a citrus infused stony minerality. On the palate fine very pure fruit – beautifully focused by the fine minerality. A lovely village – almost matching the truly delightful 2014.’ Lees verder

  3. Meursault I Arnaud Tessier

    Öhman: ‘This is a blend of Meursault Les Millerands, Les Corbins and Les Grands Charrons and this translates into a somewhat more rich and fruity Meursault village – a bigger wine in some sense. The nose offer plenty of pure and cool fruit – generous – with a nice mineral note lurking behind. On the palate generous and weighty – lovely fruit perfectly balanced by a nice minerality and a fine acidity. I do perhaps prefer the Les Casse Têtes.. for its pronounced minerality – but others may prefer the generosity of this cuvée – evenly matched they are indeed.’ Lees verder

  4. Meursault 1er Cru Poruzots-Dessus I Arnaud Tessier

    Öhman: ‘The Poruzot is very fine indeed in the 2016 vintage offering a very elegant and cool fruit + a refined presentation of the minerality. This is certainly a very delicate Poruzot – normally not my favorite terroir – but in this case … very filigree and harmonious. The nose is offering lovely pure fruit – airy and effortless minerality. On the palate lovely intensity – elegant and drinking very well – with lovely length and intensity.’ Lees verder

  5. Meursault 1er Cru Charmes-Dessus I Arnaud Tessier

    Öhman: ‘The Meursault Charmes is a step up in intensity and power – maintaining the airy effortlessness found in the refined Poruzot. The bouquet is crammed with fruit – intense yet airy and quite expressive with the powerful mineral structure as a focusing element. On the palate layers of pure fruit focused by a intense citrus infused minerality. A airy but also quite powerful Meursault Charmes – with a lovely almost sensual balance – an outstanding effort.’ Lees verder

  6. Meursault 1er Cru Genevrières I Arnaud Tessier

    Öhman: ‘The Meursault Genevrieres is – or was at least in October 2017 – surprisingly forward, elegant and filigree – with a very attractive almost perfumed nose of white orchard fruits. It seems more decadent and slightly sweeter than the excellent Meursault Charmes – offering a very charming view to the Genevrieres terroir – with some quite exotic fruit scents at this stage. On the palate elegant and focused in a very effortless way – will be interesting to follow this. The potential is certainly there to match the Meursault Charmes.’ Lees verder
