This cuvée is a blend of three parcels located in the lieu-dit « Les Narvaux ». One of them which was abandonned because of the phylloxera was entirely cleared and re-planted by Vincent’s father in the 1970’s. Les Narvaux are always vinified apart from our other Meursault village cuvées since the location is particularly good and famous.

Vinification and ageing

The wine is bottled after 15-18 months of aging on the lees. Racking occurs after the malolactic fermentation. Filtration if necessary according to the vintage. Bottling at the domaine.
100% oak – 25% to 30% new barrels.
This bottle keeps the caracteristics of Meursault with a touch of minerality and a richer structure.
The nose is powerful and well-balanced. The mouth has subtle white flowers, fresh butter and dry fruits notes, with citrus finale and a nice structure.

This Meursault matches very well with the typical Burgundian « jambon persillé », fish with cream sauce or roasted guinea fowl.
