This Les Corbins is fresh, long and very complex. A stunning Meursault.

Domaine Tessier is a rising star of Meursault’s producers. The Domaine is making refined and complex Chardonnays from the village’s best located vineyards. The Meursault “Les Corbins” vineyard is very well located mid-slope just below the also renowned “Santenots”. The vineyard is 35 years old on average.

The powerful nose displays aromas of citrus, wet stone, orange peel and fresh almond. The attack on the palate is round, delicate and vibrant. The finish is long lasting, persistant and very fine.

It can be paired with Charcuterie, poultry, pork and seafood as well as cheeses. Decant 25 minutes before serving and drink now. It can be cellared for six to eight years. 100% Chardonnay.

"This Meursault “Les Corbins” is a new addition at Domaine Tessier. The fruit were sold prior to this vintage. And what a worthy addition! It’s vibrant, complex with all the great Meursault attributes."

At Domaine Tessier, Catherine and Arnaud grow their vineyards organically. They ensure their vines are growing concentrated, ripe and healthy grapes. They employ only light ploughings, leave long branches on the vines and optimize the airflow through the canopy by removing leaves prior to harvest. After the hand harvest, grapes are pressed in a gentle pneumatic press. The juice is pumped into stainless steel vats and undergoes alcoholic fermentation. The process is as natural as possible and without introduction of external yeasts. The maturation is done in French oak barrels for twelve months – with only a few new oak barrels introduced – to preserve the beautiful fresh flavour of the wine and bring extra weight and complexity.
