The greatest of all Meursault wines, which, as all experts and wine lovers agree, would deserve to be classified as a Grand Cru. It certainly possesses the strength and finesse of one. Enjoy it with tasty fish such as perch, red mullet or turbot or with certain types of game like pheasant and roe venison. It will reveal all of its richness and complexity after seven to ten years.
