Meursault is a town in the Cotes de Beaunes, in Burgundy. Famous for its wine, which are predominantly made from Chardonnay. Meursault has no Grand Crus, but does have some exceptional Premier Cru which are considered to be worthy of Grand Cru status. The Meursault taste is full of texture, with buttery and rich, yet elegant notes, aged and complemented with oak.
The best Meursault wines are not too overpowering, well balanced and best appreciated with at least 10 years ageing.
Domaine Dupont-Fahn produces a Meursault wine made from older vines. The vineyard has been taken over by the son Raymond whilst the father Michel has moved from Meursault to near Montpelier to create a Chardonnay Vins de Pays in exactly the same way he once did in the Meursault village.
