Region: Burgundy, France
Tasting Notes: Vibrant yellow. Citrus and gentle orange blossom aromas. Fresh lemon, fleshy greengage, and smooth nutty flavors layered over a balanced oak backbone build this rich round wine with a touch of salty tang that encourages the finish to linger.
Pairing: Meursault goes well with subtle and fine-textured fish or meat such as grilled lobster, crawfish or king prawns in garlic butter sauce, and poultry or veal with white sauce. Dishes with aromatic and crisp textures match with the lively minerality, acidity and supple balance of the wine. Today, we're leaning into seafood inspiration and are sharing a recipe for Grilled Spot Prawns (or Shrimp) with Corn Pudding. Recipe from Mark Fuller, adapted by Amanda Hesser.
About: Château de Meursault is located on the prestigious Meursault appellation, international reference of great white wines. The 65 hectares of the vineyard spread over more than a hundred plots, including 5 Grands Crus, 18 Premiers Crus and a dozen of village and regional appellations. Meursault has been a Great Patron of the climates de Bourgogne association that promoted their candidacy in the world heritage of UNESCO.
The Chateau de Meursault is situated in the heart of Burgundy, in Cote de Beaune, and has a history which dates back to the 11th Century. The property is considered one of the most significant in the Côte d’Or. The 16th Century limestone cellars are some of the largest in Burgundy & each year the property hosts the Paulée de Meursault which celebrates the end of harvest for the region. In 2012 the property was purchased by Olivier Halley & he has made several significant investments including appointing Stéphane Follin-Arbelet as General Manager who has previously run Bouchard Pére & Fils & William Fevrein Chablis. They have invested in sustainable vineyard practices and state of the art optical sorting machine which ensures only the finest fruit is used in each cuvee. This historic property is now producing some icons of Meursault that ensures the next chapter of this regal property in great hands.
