Meursault "Les Vieilles Vignes"

60 years old

The vines are around the village of Meursault in the South of the Côte de Beaune. Origins from « Rougeot », « Chevalières » and « Tessons » vineyards. Soil : Chalk and clay soil. The slope is quite strong. 100% Chardonnay - Guyot pruning with different seasonal processes in the vineyard (pruning, trellising on wires/tying-in, thinning fruit-bunches).

The grapes are harvested by hand and sorted out when picking the grapes. They are lightly pressed then in a pneumatic press at a low pressure to get a slow extraction. After a gentle racking of the must, the wine is put in French oak casks of 228 liters (15% of new oak) for both of alcoholic and malolactic fermentations with wild yeasts and wild anaerobic bacteria during 14 months.

Ageing on fine lies. A month before the bottling, the wine from the different barrels is put in a stainless steel tank to make the blend. The wine is finally fined and lightly filtered before bottling it according to the lunar calendar ("fruit” day).

Heady bouquet of dried almond, butter and mineral notes. Once the wine is opened, we have fine notes of white flower, butter and toasted bread. The sugar touch in mouth reveals the fruit was very mature. Its mineral structure brings purity and freshness.

White meats and fish with creamy sauce, aperitif, scallops.
