A Meursault showing elegant finesse, with floral nuances, expressive fruit, and buttery notes complemented by a layered minerality and notes of anise. 

2020 was an outstanding vintage. The growing season began with an unusually mild winter, which led to a clement spring. Warm weather during the spring resulted in an unnaturally warm April, prompting early budburst and flowering. This set the scene for a rapid growing season, with a hot, dry summer and low rainfall resulting in arid conditions. Fortunately, cleansing winds breezed through the vineyards, which helped keep the vines free from disease. Harvest took place earlier than usual due to the warm growing season and the wines show excellent balance, with good ripeness and balancing, natural acidity. 

Jean and Henri Guillemaud are the fourth generation of the Guillemaud family to cultivate the family vines which are located in the centre of the village of Meursault. Following in the footsteps of their ancestors, they ensure that each parcel is nurtured individually, from the vine to bottling. Henri and Jean engage in sustainable viticulture in order to protect the terroir and the biodiversity of the vineyard. Herbicides are not employed, instead a more traditional approach is taken using ploughing techniques. Blending traditional viticulture with modern vinification techniques, they produce contemporary wines which express minerality and a modern expression of Meursault.
