Vinification & Ageing
- Region: Côte de Beaune
- Village: Meursault
- Appellation: Meursault
- Grape variety: Chardonnay
Situated just south of Volnay and Pommard in the Côte de Beaune, Meursault is the most extensive southerly white wine commune of the Côte-d’Or. The perfect south-easterly exposure and the stony, marl soil contribute greatly to the remarkable finesse of which the wines of Meursault are capable. Typical Meursault tend to be very full, mellow wines and mature somewhat sooner than the wines from the neighbouring communes of Puligny and Chassagne.
Traditional in oak barrels with complete malolactic fermentation
8 to 10 months ageing in oak barrels, 15% new
Louis Latour cooperage, french oak, medium toasted
On the nose, aromas of exotic fruits and vanilla are released. On the palate, these aromas are enhanced by notes of honey. A powerful wine with very nice length.
