Notes

A new cuvée Château de Meursault is proud to be producing as a result of a vineyard lease agreement with the renowned Prince de Merode estate. A wonderful mix of light and shade. Dense and tannic brambly fruits offset by more lifting loganberry and red cherry notes. Herbs, earth and undergrowth add dimension to the crunchy fruit. A wine with a great engine, driving the flavours briskly across the palate to a hauntingly long finish. Mighty and impressive.

Château de Meursault

Château de Meursault

A wonderful, historic Domaine that has the Côte de Beaune’s most impressive vaulted cellars. Château de Meursault has for a long time been on the tourist trail and is the impressive venue for the famous Paulee de Meursault in November. Their vineyard holdings have always been the envy of the Côte but a reliance on passing tourist trade, lack of know-how and investment meant that traditionally the wines failed to live up to their promise. However the Château’s fortunes changed in 2012 when it was bought by Olivier Halley with the intention to make it one of the most hallowed estates in Burgundy, money no object. The Château is now firmly on the Burgundy lover’s map. In 2012 Olivier brought in Stephane Follin-Arbelet to run the estate, brother of Frank Follin-Arbelet and former director of Bouchard, Stephane knows a thing or two about what it means to make top quality Burgundy and what it takes to manage a large estate. Conversion to organics, planting cover crops, increasing the size of picking teams (up to 200 people to shorten the harvest period) and lowering yields are just some of the many effective innovations he has brought in. The winemaking is respectful to terroir, new oak ranges from 25-40% and the wines are aged for 15-18 months in the enormous, cool, vaulted cellars underneath the Château. A new star of Burgundy is born. Along with sister estate, Château de Marsannay, this will soon be one of the biggest certified organic estates in the Côte d'Or.
