  • An opulent yet mineral Meursault with expressive aromas of peach, layered with floral blossom and lemony tones, through to a creamy, elegant palate with a mineral finish.

The house style is aimed at obtaining elegant wines imbued with the nuances of the specific terroir. The grapes were manually sorted as soon as they arrived at the winery. They were then gently pressed in a pneumatic press which allows for perfect extraction of the juice without overpressing the grapes. Vinification and aging took place in French oak barrels with selected yeasts. The wine was then matured in French oak barrels, with a proportion of 20% new oak, in their 17th-century cellars.

Meursault’s appellation of origin status dates from 1937, although the soils here were planted with vines by the monks of Cîteaux as early as 1098. The finest soils are found at elevations of 260-270 meters along the Cote d'Or escarpment, they consist of Jurassic marls and marly limestones, and there are some patches of Magnesian limestone. The hard Comblanchian limestone soils imbue the wines with hints of minerality, a distinctive feature in fine Meursault. The grapes for this wine were harvested from different vineyard parcels located both on the flatlands and on the slopes, where they enjoy southern and south-eastern exposures. The climate is typically continental, with cold winters and warm, short summers, and the area can be susceptible to spring frost, requiring vigilance in the vineyard. The vines are meticulously cultivated, and the grapes are hand-harvested at optimal maturity.
