MEURSAULT “LE PRE DE MANCHE”

Location

|  The ‘Le Pré de Manche’ lieu-dit is situated in the upper part of Meursault, just opposite Monthelie.

Surface

|  18,91 ares.

Style

|  Bright in appearance with a delicate golden hue crowned by tints of green. Its colour intensifies with age. The bouquet combines notes of hawthorn, ripe grapes, marzipan, hazelnut, amber, lemongrass and green apple. Lactic notes (butter, warm croissants), mineral notes (silex) and aromas of honey are characteristic of this wine. The palate offers a similar aromatic profile to the nose and the two are perfectly balanced and blend together harmoniously. An unctuous, firm and very supple wine!

Our sommelier’s recommendations

|  A remarkably concentrated and distinctive Meursault with good balance between fat and acidity. Its aromatic complexity and clean style work well with both delicate and rich dishes, in particular elegant meats and fish with delicate textures. This wine’s rich texture and persistent acidity enable it to hold its own against dishes such as veal or poultry in creamy sauces, without overpowering them. The firm texture of lobster or wild king prawns are also excellent choices for this wine which will balance out their rich flavours. Firm-fleshed fish such as monkfish or sea bass also make a very good match, as do blue cheeses and foie gras.

Serving temperature

|  12 to 14°C.
