Winemaker Notes

This village wine is an elegant representation of Meursault with ripe and rich fruit and undercurrents of minerality. Notes of almond and lime leaf on the nose, while the entry is bold and juicy and fills the mid-palate. Long and lingering finish. An authentic and true representation of the region.

Critical Acclaim

WS 90
Wine Spectator

A mix of lime blossom, apple and butterscotch flavors, this white is delicate and lively, well balanced and fresh, leaving accents of citrus and spice on the finish.

Rajat Parr is considered one of the greatest sommeliers of our time and has a particular affection for the wines of Burgundy. Rajat Parr’s devotion to Burgundy is well-known. Since his earliest days as a Sommelier in San Francisco, the great reds and whites of the Cote d'Or have been his muses. The restaurants he has created and the wines he makes are all inspired from his deep love of Burgundy.

Meaning the “home at the edge of the forest,” the creation of the negociant house Maison L'Oree is Rajat’s first opportunity to help produce the very wines that have inspired his life.

For both the avid consumer of Burgundian wines and the newcomer to this often-intimidating region, Maison L’Orée presents the opportunity to explore the region via vetted, curated selections from a passionate advocate of the area.

Guided by Rajat’s palate and knowledge, Maison L’Orée offers small quantities of hand-selected wines from Rajat’s favorite vineyard sites in Burgundy.

Meursault Wine

Cotes de Beaune, Burgundy

Known to offer a magical balance of smoothness and freshness, Meursault's quality is hard to rival. The village lies in the middle of Côte de Beaune, just south of Volnay. Meursault is said to mean “mouse’s jump” because in the past the plots producing Pinot Noir and those producing Chardonnay were no more than a mouse’s jump from one another. Today the village is almost exclusively Chardonnay. A tiny bit of Pinot Noir is produced here with the best coming from Les Santenots on its northern side near Volnay.

While there are no Grands Crus, Meursault’s numerous acclaimed Premiers Crus can compete with any other top-notch white Burgundy. Some to know are Les Perrières, Les Genevrières, Les Charmes, Le Poruzot, Les Bouchères and Les Gouttes d’Or.

Meursault produces outstanding village level wines as well. In general great Premiers Crus and even village level Meursault (Chardonnay) have enticing aromas of lime peel, tropical fruit, crushed rocks, spice and hazelnut. On the palate there is a wonderful balance of brightness and a seductive length with flavors of white peach, pineapple and citrus.

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
