Côte de Beaune, Burgundy, France

One of the most celebrated white wine appellation of the Côte d’Or, Meursault spans 381ha of vineyards between Puligny-Montrachet (to the south) and Volnay (to the north). The white wines of Meursault (a small amount of Meursault Pinot Noir is also produced) are famously rich and and buttery with hints of hazelnut, vanilla and wood spice. Meursault’s marly Comblanchian limestone soil also provides a distinctive minerality.

There are many subtle variations of terroir within appellation, but generally Meursault produces wines with lower acidity and more roundness than those of neighbouring Puligny and Chassagne. The vineyards on the south side of the village of Meursault, bordering Puligny-Montrachet, have a reputation for producing the finest Chardonnays.

Although there are no Grand Crus within Meursault, the entire appellation is renowned for the high quality of its wines. As well as having 107ha of Premier Cru sites, Meursault has a number of well-respected lieux-dits, which are often highlighted on wine labels.
