Chateau de Meursault

Château de Meursault – Meursault is both the name of the property, and the name of the Burgundy commune wine appellation! It is common in Bordeaux to have the name of the winery associated with the village where it is situated, but very rare indeed in Burgundy. The estate is situated in the Côte d'Or department of Burgundy, 8 kilometres from Beaune, and has a long and rich history, dating back to 11th century when the Fiefdom of Moulin Foulot was created which would later become Château de Meursault. From the 12th to 16th centuries the fiefdom passed through many hands, and the property was subsequently owned by the Blancheton [1666], Serre [in 1835, Charles Serre began the building of the present château and winery on the site of the older property] and Boisseaux [1973] families. In 2012, the present owner, Olivier Halley acquired Château de Meursault. The estate has nearly 65 hectares under vine, covering 35 appellations in 110 plots, planted with Pinot Noir and Chardonnay on a mosaic of “climats”. Their jewel is the Clos Vineyard, an 8 hectare enclosed plot of Chardonnay vines, planted in 1973 right in front of the château, on gravelly and alluvium soils. Each plot is vinfied separately; there may be up to six cuvées from the same appellation. The wines are aged in their magnificent Cistercian style double-vaulted cellars below the château, for between 12 and 18 months. Every year these remarkable medieval cellars host the famous Paulée de Meursault lunch at the end of the grape harvest. Château de Meursault has become one of the most prestigious estates on the Côte d'Or, creating sublime wines which are presented in a unique bottle produced from a mould created in the 18th century – special indeed!
