Meursault

Terroir

The name Meursault alone is evocative of Burgundy's great white wines. At the heart of Côte de Beaune, it also marks the boundary between the white wines in the south, with the neighbouring commune of Puligny-Montrachet, and the red wines to the north, with Volnay and Pommard.

Vinification & Elevage

The grapes are harvested by hand and placed in small crates to prevent the bunches being compacted. For our white wines, the grapes are brought whole to our pneumatic wine press. Slow gentle pressing allows the juices to be extracted in the best possible conditions. These juices are then placed in a settling vat and cooled to 8° for 24 hours to clarify them. Lastly, they are placed directly in oak barrels (30 % of which are new) for alcoholic fermentation over 14 months.

Commentaries by our oenologist

"This wine is yellow in colour with silver highlights, and its nose is toasty, evoking the aromas of bread and toasted brioche, flowers and honey. Full-bodied, smooth and rich in the mouth, with notes of pear. Serve between 10 and 12°C."

Food pairing

It complements poultry in a creamy sauce, shellfish or a soft cheese such as Brie.
