ORIGIN

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.
