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.
Maturity in 100% new oak barrels, and slow fermentation with batonnage being used for ageing on lees for 18 months.

This wine has a bright white-gold colour. The nose is frank and intense, with notes of exotic fruits, pepper, white flowers, and a hint of lime. The wood is very well integrated and brings a very good tension to the wine. In the mouth, the attack is powerful and energetic at the same time, with a tangy perception that gives a lot of freshness. The mid-mouth is dense and very fruity. The finish is juicy, with a saline tip that gives great persistence. A wine with extremely good ageing potential.

To be enjoyed with flambé prawns, a veal chop, salmon in a salt crust, a Bresse poultry and its juice, a stuffed capon, and foie gras with figs.
