  • Terroir

    Appellation Village de la Côte de Beaune, Meursault is famed for its bold, balanced whites; it produces very little red. At an altitude of about 260 metres, its vines planted on calcareous marl soils produce great wines.

  • Varietals

    100% Chardonnay

  • Vinification

    After being harvested by hand, the grapes are destalked and then pressed ready for vinification in new 500-litre oak barrels. The wines are then aged for 6 to 12 months in barrels that have seen two previous vintages.

  • Tasting notes

    Their gold-green or polished bronze robes, depending on age, are clear and bright. Their bouquet evokes almonds and toasted hazelnuts with plant, floral and mineral (flint) notes. Butter, honey and citrus also find full expression in these fine wines. On the palate, a rich, full-bodied wine with a hazelnut flavour. This Meusault offers a good balance between creaminess and freshness. Long and structured, it needs to be matured.

  • Food pairing

    This wine is ideal with noble meats such as pieces of veal or poultry in white sauce and with fine fish. It is even better with grilled shellfish or shellfish in sauce, such as prawns, lobster or crayfish. Even blue cheeses and foie gras adopt it the first time they meet.

  • Aeging and Service Temperature

    Serve at a temperature of 12° to 14°C. A great white wine for keeping.
