The wine is bottled after 10-15 months of aging on the lees. Racking occurs after the malolactic fermentation. Filtration if necessary according to the vintage. Bottling at the domaine.
There is a light note of wood which gives a round and rich wine,with typical « murisaltiens » scents: elegant and generous (« murisaltien » means : from Meursault).
This Bourgogne originates from Meursault with the same way of vinification, that is why is it full of finess and delicacy. The nose has a nice full Chardonnay bouquet. It has a typical round mouth with scents of dry fruits and white flowers.
