More info

The grapes were grown in the named plot of Le Limozin, which sits alongside some of the best Premier Cru vineyards in Meursault. The vines are farmed according to "La lutte raisonnée", using sustainable agriculture methods, reducing the use of chemicals in order to respect the land and its environment. The soils in the vineyard are limestone mixed with marl, retaining moisture in dry weather, but also offering good drainage in cooler weather.

The grapes were harvested at optimal maturity and carefully sorted. The wine was 100% fermented in French oak, of which 30% was new. The wine went through malolactic conversion and underwent delicate ‘bâtonnage’ – stirring of the fine lees – gently imparting texture and further complexity to the resulting wine. It was then aged in French oak barrels (30% new) for 14 months. The wine was lightly fined and filtered prior to being estate bottled by gravity.
