MEURSAULT “Les Meix Chavaux”

MEURSAULT “Les Meix Chavaux”

Village Appellation located in the Auxey-Duresses region. The east-northeast placing produces a crisp Meursault wine. The white wines are not stirred and tend to be more crisp than rich.

  • Cépage : Chardonnay
  • Âge moyen de la vigne : 40 years
  • Surface : 0,6 acres
  • Vinification :

    No sulphite is used during harvest so the alcoholic fermentation process, which takes place without the addition of yeast, is not tampered with. Just after alcoholic fermentation, the grapes are inoculated with lactic bacteria to begin the malolactic fermentation process.

  • Élevage : SO2 addition at 18cl/hl and maturing in barrels for about 11 months
  • Mise en bouteilles : Estate bottled. Fined (where protein haze is active) and earth filtered. Level of SO2: 25 to 30 mg/l of free SO2 and 70 to 90 mg/l of total SO2
