Deep ruby. The nose reveals ripe black fruits, accompanied by spicy notes. Full, with elegant tannins which give very structured wine. Black fruits and spicy aromas.
Wine Advocate 91 points - Tasted blind at the annual ”Burgfest” tasting in Beaune. The 2012 Volnay 1er Cru Clos des Chenes from Chateau de Meursualt was showing just a touch of reduction on the nose, but not as acute as other offenders and there is plenty of attractive redcurrant and wild strawberry fruit underneath, plus fine delineation and focus. The palate is medium-bodied with a lightly spiced entry, harmonious and poised with a structured, marine-tinged finish that lingers long in the mouth. This is very fine - bravo!  (Oct 2015)

Wine maker notes
Once the harvest is delivered to the winery hall, it is hand sorted in order to keep the best bunches of the grapes. After the destalking of the grapes, its juice, skins and pulp are put into the vat for 15-18 days. The prefermentary cold maceration starts during this period and lasts for 5-6 days, followed by an alcoholic fermentation. Cap-punching is made during this period in order to obtain complete and perfect maceration. The juice is separated from the rest of the must after the pneumatic pressing and the wine starts its aging in new oak barrels (about 30%) as well as in the oak barrel of 1 or 2 years (about 70%).

Origin of the castle ... The origin of the Chateau de Meursault goes back to the 11st century. In 1666, the owner of Pierre de Blancheton, lawyer at the Parliament of Burgundy will remain there until the Revolution. At the beginning of the 19th century the property was extended, partly under the impetus of the Serre family, who carried out major architectural modifications and who considerably developed the vineyards of the estate INHERITANCE Through the lottery of succession, the estate of the Chateau of Meursault was bequeathed to the Count de Moucheron, who left it to his eldest son, Etienne. During this era, the estate was a quarter of its present size. In 1973, Andre Boisseaux owner of the Kriter Group and the Maison Patriarche bought the Chateau of Meursault and completely restored it. At the end of 2012, this Burgundian gem was acquired by the Halley family, which wants to continue and expand the influence of the Chateau in France and abroad. Today, the Chateau of Meursault is one of the most beautiful and largest properties in Burgundy.
