Meursault is situated a few miles South of Beaune, where Robert Drouhin buys grapes from selected vineyards. At harvest time, the grapes are hand-picked and gently pressed ; as with all other wines, Robert Drouhin is very careful with the use of new oak, never exceeding 30%, so that the fruit cannot be dominated by the wood. The wine is bottled after nine or ten months. Meursault can be served alone as an aperitif with smoked salmon. At dinner, Meursault is recommended with delicate fish dishes, lobster, foie gras or even poultry, as well as fresh goat cheese. Meursault is a wine with a luminous gold color, intense fragrance and refined flavors. It is full bodied without being heavy, with a long lasting finish.
