Our oenologists' opinion

Powerful bouquet

This golden-colored wine is limpid and shiny. At nose, notes of brioche and melted butter are present. The gourmet attack is also tasteful. A light taste of dried apricot is felt just before the tasty finale.

Green Gold

Features

Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.

Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.

Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.

Do you know ?

Burgundy wines are produced mainly with single grape varieties. The leading varieties, the pinot noir and chardonnay grapes, thrive in this region with a semi-continental climate to produce exceptional red and white wines.

Domain and appellation

  • Château de Meursault

    Founded in the XIth century, the domain of the Château de Meursault has never ceased to extend the size of its vineyard.
     

    • Terroir: The Clos du Château is a plot of 8 hectares of chardonnay, planted in 1975. The vines lie on a soil of light limestone alluvium.
       
    • Viticulture: The yield is controlled thanks to a manual fruit thinning made with a secater. Also, a reasoned agriculture has been set up.
       
    • Wine-making: A slow and progressive pressurization precedes a static settling of 12 hours. The must are then put in oak barrels to start fermenting alcohol. The wine is then brought up in new barrels (25%), in barrels of one or two wines and in stainless steel tanks, for 12 to 15 months.
