Meursault 1er Cru "Les Cras"

55 years old

The grapes come from Meursault and the climat is located in the north part of the Villages. This vineyard is located just above the Volnay Santenots. Soil : Mainly limestone and little clay. 100% pinot noir. Guyot pruning with different yearly works in the vineyard (pruning, trellising on wires/tying-in, thinning fruit-bunches).

Harvest-picking by hand. The grapes are sorted twice (when picking the grapes and on the sorting table) then partially de-stemmed, (when needed, depending the quality of the berries a third sort is done with our optical machine), and put in stainless still thermo-regulated tanks. The alcoholic fermentation can begin with natural yeasts from the grape berries during around 3 weeks. Pumping-over (the must) very soft in order to be very careful about the substance and order to get the purest and most representative wine we can have. Soft pressing

The wine is put into barrels of French oak (20% for new oak). The malolactic fermentation can begin then with natural bacterium from the juice. The ageing lasts 12 months on fine lees. We follow the lunar calendar for the bottling without fining and filtering. The Meursault 1er Cru Les Cras is bottled when the moon is down and when the day is fruit according to the moon calendar.

The Meursault 1er Cru Les Cras is well-coloured and develop a powerful bouquet featuring red and black berries. Solid structure on a tannic base.
