GRAPE VARIETYChardonnay

The vineyard : On the "terroir" of Meursault, some of the vineyards classed as a village apellation are situated on marly ground, identical to the Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru (only the topography and altitude are different). These vineyards of a quality equivalent to that of a Premier Cru deserve to be vinified separately. This is the case for vines from the terroir of Les Clous whose name apparently not too flattering comes in fact from a deformation of the word "Clos". The Bouchard Père et Fils estate owns 8.64 hectares here, i.e. almost half of the total area.

Know-howWorking the vines: This Premier Cru parcel is tended by a vine-grower who takes care of the vineyard up to the harvest. Working with the cycle of nature, he enables the terroir to fully express its nuances from vintage to vintage.

Winemaking and maturing: Following hand picking in small cases and meticulous sorting of the grapes, pressing takes place in two phases: evacuation of the first juice, then pressing in two-hourly cycles. Depending on the profile of the vintage,
maturing is carried out for 10 to 12 months in French oak barrels, with a proportion of new barrels that may be up to 15%.

Ageing : These wines enjoy the optimum ambient conditions in the cellars of the Bastions of the ancient Château de Beaune.

Tasting notes : Intense bouquet of fruit and flowers. This wine is both subtle and very lively. Good ageing potential.

Conseils de service : Food-wine suggestions: Fish dishes in sauce, such as pike in white butter sauce and salmon with sorrel sauce
