Meursault le Porusot

Premier cru - Côte de Beaune

More details

Between Perrières and Bouches Chères, this climat whose name evokes the stony land of the slope, has been worked since the Cistercian era. Indeed, the appellation goes back to 1098 – the year Cîteaux Abbey was founded. At that time, the monks had a few vines in the commune, and they knew how to develop their wonderful potential, like this magnificent but little-known Meursault le Porusot.

The vineyards of MJ TRICOT are entrusted to the house of Bouchard Père et Fils, providing the extensive expertise of its winemakers and cellar master to create products of excellence.
