(Image credit: Château de Meursault)

Château de Meursault has been a Great Patron of the “Climats de Bourgogne Association” that promoted their candidacy in the world heritage of UNESCO. We were more than delighted to know that on the 5 th of July 2015 it was finally accepted! Château de Meursault is located in the heart of Burgundy, in Côte de

Beaune on the prestigious appellation of Meursault, which is a global reference for the great white wines. 

When you enter Château de Meursault, you find yourself in a mythical Burgundy wine estate,a place full of history where you can taste the wines from Côte de Beaune surrounded by unique architecture. Château de Meursault was acquired by the Halley family in December 2012, also owners of Château de Marsannay la Côte de Nuits and Marché aux Vins in Beaune.

Over the years, the owners have made extensions and have considerably developed the vineyard which has become one of the most prestigious estates of Côte-d'Or. The vineyard extends on nearly 65 hectares from Puligny-Montrachet to Aloxe-Corton, including eighteen Premier Crus, three Grands Crus, and a monopoly.

History

The fiefdom of Foulot MIll, which was later to become Château de Meursault, was created in the 11th century, during the reign of Robert the 1st. From the 12th to 16th centuries, the owners of the fiefdom changed several times due to the struggle between the Duchy of Burgundy and the King of France. Starting from the 17th century, the Blancheton, the Serre, the Boisseaux, and nowadays the Halley families succeeded each other – all of them having the same ambition of developing the reputation of Château de Meursault and its wines.

Award-winning Wines

Château de Meursault produces the wines from Puligny-Montrachet located in the South of Côte de Beaune up to Corton in the North. The bottle of Château de Meursault is produced in a special mold created in the 18th century.
