Meursault is an Appellation d’origine contrôlée (AOC) in the Côte de Beaune which runs along the foot of the Côte-d’Or escarpment, near Beaune . Meursault produces mainly white wines from Chardonnay grapes, often described as “buttery” due to the influence of oak ageing. The wines of Meursault vie with the Grands Crus of the white burgundies from the villages such as Chassagne-Montrachet and Puligny-Montrachet, where several Grands Crus are situated.There are observable but minor differences between the wines of the different Climats (named plots). In most cases, Meursault is greeny-gold in colour or canary yellow, leaning towards bronze as it ages. Limpid and brilliant, it sometimes exhibits silvery highlights. Its bouquet has strong aromas of ripe grapes. The young wine is redolent of toasted almonds and hazelnuts in a floral (mayflower, elder, bracken, lime, verbena) and mineral (flint) setting. Butter, honey, and citrus fruits are also present. On the palate it is rich and fat with a cheerful and appealing taste of hazelnut. Unctuousness and freshness are in silky balance. Long and structured, it needs time to mature – this is a great white wine for laying down.

The town of Meursault is home to the international wine event La Paulée de Meursault, which takes place on the 3rd Sunday in November, marking the end of the “Trois Glorieuses” festival and after the Hospices de Beaune wine auction.
