Meursault is an appellation from the Côte de Beaune. Its Premier Cru vineyards total 107,50 hectares.
The subsoil is mainly clay and limestone. This wine is made from a selection of vines located at mid-slope that enjoy south-eastern exposure. “Les Perrières” refers to the numerous stone quarries that once existed in this location. Workers there were once known as “perriers” hence the vineyard’s name.
The grapes were handpicked and hand sorted as soon as they arrived at the winery. They were then pressed in a pneumatic press which allows for perfect extraction of the juice without over pressing the grapes. The wine was vinified and aged in barrels with a proportion of 20% new oak and aged on the lees for 14 months with occasional stirring.
