WHAT THE CRITICS ARE SAYING

This wine comes from a parcel of 2.80 hectares.
This recently acquired plot is vinified for the first time by Château de Meursault. It gives a wine with a pretty ruby colour and purple tints. The nose is fresh, fruity, aromatic and offers a certain gourmandize as well as richness (but full of control / freshness). It reveals notes of wild raspberry, fleshy strawberry and small notes of cassis associated with touches of plum, cornflowers, lily, hints of liquorice, nutmeg as well as fine hints of laurel / laurel berries (in the background) and an imperceptible hint of fresh leather (in the background).

The palate is fruity, well-balanced, framed and offers freshness, a small minerality, an acidulous frame, a certain richness (but full of control), a beautiful freshness as well as a small tight side. On the palate this wine expresses notes of pulpy / juicy raspberry, crunchy / juicy cherry and small notes of acidulous purple plum associated with touches of cornflowers, licorice as well as fine hints of racy minerality, vanilla, laurel berries and a subtle toasted hint. Tannins are slightly firm. Good length and good persistence.

OUR NOTES

The Chateau de Meursault estate comprises 60 hectares of vines. It is one of the Côte de Beaune’s most richly endowed estates, indeed no less than 23 hectares of its holdings lie in Premier Cru and Grand Cru appellations. The estate’s origins go back to the 11th century. From 1666 it was owned by Pierre de Blancheton, a lawyer in the Burgundy Parliament, and it remained in his family until the Revolution. At the beginning of the 19th century the estate was enlarged, mainly thanks to the Serre family who made important modifications to the Château’s architecture and considerably developed the vineyards. After passing down through successive generations, it came into the hands of the Count of Moucheron, who left it to his eldest son, Étienne. At that time the estate was about a quarter of its size today. In 1973 André Boisseaux, founder of the Kriter Group, bought the Chateau and devoted a lot of energy and taste to its restoration. Finally in 2012 the estate was acquired by Olivier Halley, a wine lover who has always had a passionate conviction towards the greatness of Burgundy’s vineyards.
