Meursault is an appellation from the Côte de Beaune. The vineyards are located to the south of Beaune and cover a surface area of 395,84 hectares. Meursault is best known for its white wines which represent 95% of production. The name of this village comes from the efforts undertaken by man to plant vines in extremely stony soils. Stones that were thrown formed piles. We call it "murger".
The grapes were hand-picked and sorted manually as soon as they arrived at the winery. They were then pressed in a pneumatic press which allows for perfect extraction of the juices without over pressing the grapes. Vinification and ageing took place in wooden barrels with a proportion of 20% new oak. The wine aged on the lees for 14 months with occasional stirring, then on stainless tank during 2 months.
