Situated just south of Volnay and Pommard in the Côte de Beaune, Meursault is the most extensive southerly white wine commune of the Côte-d'Or. The perfect south-easterly exposure and the stony, marl soil contribute greatly to the remarkable finesse of which the wines of Meursault are capable. Typical Meursault tend to be very full, mellow wines and mature somewhat sooner than the wines from the neighbouring communes of Puligny and Chassagne.
The average age of the vines are 25 years with an average yield of 45 hl/ha.
Harvested by hand.
Pale yellow in colour, the Meursault 2013 Vt reveals a floral nose, slightly buttery with hints of fresh almond and hazelnut. The palate is round with a lively finish.
