The « Clos des Meix Chavaux » is the largest single owned vineyard in Meursault of just under 3.5 hectares in total. At 250m altitude the soil is deeper, therefore allowing the vines to descend further and giving the wine an opulent and aromatic style. The nose is subtle yet complex – peaches, nectarines a hint of lemon – beautiful intensity. The palate is fresh and gets bigger with time. Very lengthy finish with florals and fruits.
About the Wine Maker
One of Burgundy's best kept secrets is this domain, which has been run by Claudine Gaunoux since the late 1990s. Throughout the year, she works meticulously in the vineyards to prune and tackle potential plant and grape problems at the source. As a result, Claudine harvests only the best grapes, which are then vinified and matured in stainless steel tanks. 'Wood is make-up for bad wines' is her adage. The fact is that her wines - with pure fruit flavors and minerality - are different from others. And as the connoisseurs know, Gaunoux's wines can be stored for a brilliantly long time!
