Vineyards situation : Meursault is the centre of the four communes (Meursault, Blagny, Chassagne and Puligny) comprising that part of the Côte de Beaune known as the «Côte des Blancs», named for the quality and predominance of its white wines. Characteristics The vineyards are spread over gentle slopes, between 230 and 360 metres above sea level. The eastern orientation is ideal, allowing maximum sunlight. Chalky soils with white marl is best suited to the Chardonnay grape. The Premier Cru Meursault Genevrières" appellation applies to white wines only.

Wine making : Fermentation and aging takes place in oak barrels during 15 to 18 months before bottling.

Winemaker's comments / Gastronomy : Maison Louis Jadot produces a rich full-bodied wine but not too fat. It is very aromatic when young and keep its strength all through its life. The strength and suppleness of Meursault make these wines ideal partners for food which is both rich and spicy, hot or cold : foie gras, fish in a cream sauce, shellfish in a sauce, poultry with cream, blanquettes, strong cheeses.

Preservation : It can be cellared for 8 to 15 years in good conditions of temperature and humidity.
