This wine from steep slopes with clayey-calcareous subsoils is always strongly marked by its terroir. Its mineral and flinty character is unique in Meursault. You will notice the contrast between minerality and notes of honey in the bouquet. The rich, fruity and powerful aromas are highlighted by spicy and mineral notes. Delicious exotic dishes will pair perfectly with this complex wine, whose personality will have fully developed after three to seven years in the bottle.
