Chateau de Meursault

Chateau de Meursault

The origin of the Chateau de Meursault dates back to the 11th century. Through the lottery of succession, the estate was bequeathed to the Count de Moucheron and later purchased by André Boisseaux in 1973. At the end of 2012, this Burgundian gem was acquired by the Halley Family. The vineyards of the Estate spread over 60 hectares in Côte de Beaune, in the villages of Aloxe-Corton, Savigny-Lès-Beaune, Corton, Beaune, Volnay, Pommard, Meursault and Puligny-Montrachet. Meursault's magnificent Cistercian cellars, which date back to the 12th, 14th and 16th centuries, extend beneath the Château and can house up to 700,000 bottles and more than 2,000 barrels of wine. The vines of the Château de Meursault are ideally situated half way up the hillsides, at an altitude of around 250 meters, exposed to the East and sheltered from the wind. The soil is rich in limestone and well drained. Each parcel of land is divided amongst 18 vineyard workers, and each parcel is cared for by the same worker throughout the year.
