François Martenot. Sitting majestically on the hills around Meursault, it symbolises the richness and diversity of Bourgogne with its lovely selection of Regional, Villages, Premier Cru and Grand Cru appellations from the Chablis area, the Côte de Nuits and the Côte de Beaune.
The vineyard is located in the north of the Côte de Beaune, between the villages of Aloxe-Corton and Ladoix-Serrigny, on the heights of the mythical mountain
Stony sloping ground consisting of reddish brown limestone, rich in marl with a high potassium content.
Harvest by hand. Traditional vinification. The grapes are pressed immediately upon arrival at the winery in pneumatic presses. The alcoholic fermentation is carried
out in oak barrels, 50% new oak. The wine is aged for 18 months in oak barrels with regular stirring to gain depth and complexity.
Pale golden color which changes shade over time.
The nose has a great aromatic complexity that gains strength with aeration: candied orange, hawthorn, hazelnut, hot brioche...
These greedy and generous flavors on the palate, alongside a nice acid characteristic of the vintage frame provide great length in the mouth and a good aging potential.
The delicacy of this wine combines perfectly with foie gras, noble shellfish such as lobster, crab. Poultry and veal in white sauce also pair well. Cheeses with a light
taste (Camembert, Brie, Blue cheese, Goat cheese, Gruyere...).
