Meursault is an appellation from the Côte de Beaune, named after the village of Meursault located in the south of Beaune. It covers a surface area of 396 hectares, of which 108 are Premier Cru rated. Meursault is best known for its white wines which represent 96% of the production.
It also forms the north tip of the Golden Triangle, where the finest white wines of Burgundy come from, along with the villages of Puligny-Montrachet and Chassagne-Montrachet.
The subsoil is mainly composed of clay and limestone. These elements are perfect for the Chardonnay grapes because they can find just the right amount of water to keep their freshness and developp their minerality in the limestone.
Vinification firstly takes place in stainless vats to start the alcoholic fermentation.
The wine is then placed for 12 months aging in oak barrels (inclunding 30 % new oak).
Colour : elegant green gold.
Nose : nice aromas of almond, lime tree (linden) and mineral notes.
Palate : a fat, rich and elegant wine, silky and powerful with a nice balance between richness and acidity.
This great White Burgundy has a natural affinity with fine-textured fishes or meats such as veal.
It will beautifully enhance grilled lobster, seashells or king prawns; even blue cheeses and foie gras.
This wine will reach its full potential in 8 to 10 years depending on the vintage.
Serve ideally between 13° and 14°C. (54-57°F.).
