The history of our terroir
The wines of Burgundy, and especially those of Meursault, owe their unparalleled finesse and their typicality to extraordinary geography, where geology and topography are closely linked. The wines display a world of difference if the parcel lies on the slope or near the villages, if the slope is steep or more gentle, if the soil is more clay or limestone, and if the vines face due east or slightly north-east or south-east.
On this land with its strong identity, the famous climats of Burgundy, extraordinary natural conditions have been shaped by human labour since the Middle Ages and the founding of the abbeys of Cluny and Cîteaux. The Chardonnay grape variety, king of the Burgundy whites, can find its true expression here through the magical combination of rich land and determined men and women.
