Dating back to the 11th Century, The Château de Meursault estate comprises 60 hectares of vines, all situated in the Côte de Beaune, around the villages of Aloxe Corton, Savigny-les-Beaune, Beaune, Pommard, Volnay, Meursault and Puligny-Montrachet. 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 changed hands In 2012, bringing a brand new vision and approach: conversion to organics, planting of cover crops, increase of the size of picking teams (up to 200 people to shorten the harvest period) and lowering yields are just some of the many effective innovations that Managing Director Stéphane Follin-Arbelet has brought in. The winemaking is respectful to terroir, new oak ranges from 25-40% and the wines are aged for 15-18 months in the enormous, cool, vaulted cellars underneath the Château.
All the wines are estate grown. The Château de Meursault does not source any juice/wines from the negoce trade.
