Meursault is the center of four communes that make up the Côte des Blancs, named for the predominantly white wines produced there. The soils of Les Charmes are richer and heavier than the soils of Les Perrières, just above it on the slope, making Les Charmes the more typical, masculine Meursault. The Chardonnay grapes are fermented and matured in oak barrels for a total of 15 to 18 months.

About the Grape

Chardonnay
Though it has a distinctive profile, Chardonnay reflects other factors such as soil composition and vinification technique. Chardonnay is a reliable, hardy and prolific vine whose only real vulnerabilities are frost and uneven development of fruit.
