ABOUT THE PRODUCER
Pierre Mayeul is the story of three old friends with long-standing winemaking history in Burgundy. United by the same passion for this beloved region, they are committed to producing high-quality wines, where each cuvee beautifully represents the individual terroir and 'climat' of the appellation. Harvest is manual, followed by selective sorting to maintain quality control throughout production. Wines are vinified in an old castle in Ladoix and aged in barrels in cellars that date back to the 17th Century situated in the very heart of Beaune. This Meursault was harvested in September at a perfect level of ripeness. A slow fermentation followed in oak barrels (50% of which were new) accompanied by regular stirring of the lees - all of which helped to nurture and enhance the classic creamy yet vibrant richness of the Meursault appellation.

TASTING NOTES
With a bright golden hue this classic example of Meursault has an intense nose of pear, peach and white blossom with subtle notes of toasty hazelnut and oak. A soft and full bodied Chardonnay (100%) yet with a refreshingly zesty citrus character the rich, round and luxurious mouthfeel retains a lively minerality. This enticingly balance leads to a lingering finish of concentrated pure fruit and buttery, vanilla-infused oak flavours.

FOOD PAIRING 
Meursault pairs beautifully with subtle and fine textured fish & meat such as grilled lobster with garlic butter, trout almondine or scallops in bechamel sauce. Poultry - quail for instance - or veal accompanied by a rich truffle sauce would also be a perfect match. For a meat-free bite a bowl of buttery, savoury gougeres is a classic pairing.
