Starting from Beaune and then heading south, Meursault is the first of the three great white wine villages in Côte de Beaune. The Premier Cru “Le Porusot” appellation takes place between “Les Bouches Chères” and “Les Genevrières”.
Our Premier Cru “Le Porusot” comes from vines on the upper section of lower “Le Porusot”. The oldest vines are around fifty years old. It is the most mineral of the Meursault wines.
In the “Le Porusot” micro-climate facing east, the slope is gentle and wines very mineral and lively thanks to the shallow soil that gives vigour to the earth. Soils here are pebbly. Made from old alluvial deposits followed by with clay-chalky and Oxfordian marl with snatches of white calcareous soil.
“Le Porusot” means “where the stones abound” in old French Wines have a naturally smoky flavour.
100% hand-picking. Moderate pressing, juices are settled at controlled temperatures, alcoholic fermentation, malo-lactic fermentation, maturing and ageing on lies take place on oak casks for 12 months.
- Gold colour with green tints.
- The bouquet blends mineral notes of flint, vanilla and a touch of fruit with caramelised cinnamon apple.
- The palate is immediately round with lots of elegance, lively and with mineral flavours that give it a lot of freshness. Vanilla notes appear thanks to the elegant presence of wood.
Enjoy as an aperitif with foie gras canapés. The wine also goes wonderfully well with shellfish, grilled fish and fish casseroles.
Serve at around 14 °C. (57°F.).
This great wine can be drunk now with its primary aromas and will also age very well in a cellar for the next 5 years.
