Producer Note
The Bouzereau family has been growing vines in Meursault for nine generations,
dating back to the 18th century. The current Château de Cîteaux was established
by Philippe Bouzereau (senior) in the 1960s. His son Philippe (junior) took over the
running of the estate in 2006, having completed his studies in Beaune and worked
vintages in Beaujolais, Australia and New Zealand. The 18 hectares of vines are
cultivated according to the principles of la ‘Lutte Raisonnée’, or sustainable farming.
Philippe passionately believes in letting the wine express its terroir, through minimum
intervention in the winery and a judicious use of oak. He has certainly achieved this,
as the resulting wines are rich, concentrated and showcase the terroir beautifully.


Vineyard
The grapes come from a family plot, 'Les Grands Charrons', to which Philippe is
particularly attached. The vines have an average age of 40 years and are grown in
clay, gravel and alluvial soils. The vineyard is managed using sustainable practices,
only organic fertilisers and composts are used; and chemical herbicides have not
been used for over 15 years. The vineyard is cultivated in the traditional Burgundian
manner.


Winemaking
The grapes were hand-harvested at optimal maturity, carefully selected and
pneumatically pressed. Fermentation took place on the lees in oak barrels with
regular 'bâtonnage' or lees stirring. The wines were then matured in the family cellars
in French oak barrels of which 20 to 30% were new, for a period of 12 months. The
use of oak is carefully monitored to ensure it does not detract from the nuances of
the terroir in the plot of Les Grands Charrons.


Tasting Note
A wonderful expression of a fine Meursault, generous and concentrated with a nutty,
buttery richness and delicate floral notes, underpinned by nuances of spice and
minerality. Smooth and creamy, with beautiful balance and an impressively long,
elegant finish.
