Château de Meursault is located in the heart of Burgundy, in Côte de Beaune on the prestigious appellation of Meursault, which is a global reference for the great white wines. When you enter Château de Meursault, you find yourself in a mythical Burgundy wine estate, a place full of history where you can taste the wines from Côte de Beaune surrounded by unique architecture. Château de Meursault was acquired by the Halley family in December 2012, also owners of Château de Marsannay in Côte de Nuits and Marché aux Vins in Beaune. Over the years, the owners have made extensions and have considerably developed the vineyard which has become one of the most prestigious estates of Côte-d’Or. The vineyard extends on nearly 65 hectares from Puligny-Montrachet to Aloxe-Corton, including eighteen Premier Crus, three Grands Crus and a monopoly.
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.
