Tasting notes: A jewel of the Château, a racy Charmes, a very complete Meursault - shows a very complex nose with aromas of ripe fruit of peach and yellow plum and undertones of citrus rind and honeysuckle. Crispy, yet alluring, with a fresh and mineral finish. A ravishing Meursault.
Story: From four specific parcels vinified separately high up in the Charmes Dessus vineyard, just below Clos des Perrières and abutting the vines of Dominque Lafon. This represents a clear step up from the straight Charmes.
The Château 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 Château 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.
