Pierre Mayeul is the story of three old friends united by the same passion for Burgundy and with a shared goal to produce high-quality wines where each cuvee beautifully represents the individual terroir and 'climat' of each appellation. Each with a long history of Burgundian winemaking they vinify their wines in an old castle in Ladoix and age the wines in barrels in cellars that date back to the 17th Century situated in the very heart of Beaune.
The grapes were gently pressed in a bladder press, after which the juice is settled for a day. Post-fermentation the wine is aged in 30% in French oak Barriques, with regular stirring of the lees, and aged for a further 15 months.

The wine immediately starts singing in the glass with perfumes of toasted almond, baked pear, apple custard, vanilla pod and creamed corn. The palate opens up with sour pineapple, creme fraiche, soft but warm allspice and all-butter apple crumble. The structure is outlined with tremendous freshness and viscosity that strikes an impeccable balance further showing the finesse of this well-made white Burgundy. And elegant texture with a finish that lingers and evolves with every passing moment. 

Rotisserie chicken with creamy polenta or rich carbonara pasta with cinghiale and mature and nutty cheeses like Comté.
