This Bourgogne Chardonnay Clos des six ouvrées is detailed, rich and fresh.

Domaine Rougeot has a long history of making superb white wines out of the famed village of Meursault. Their "Clos des six ouvrées" vineyard is located within the Domaine's walls, at the base of the hill of Meursault, and mere metres from the “Les Chevalières” climat. It is the ideal location to grow great quality Chardonnay and this Bourgogne is often called the “Petit Meursault” within the range. This Clos (a vineyard surrounded by walls) is only producing six to eight barrels a year.

The nose displays fine notes of wet stones, white peach, citrus and a delicate perfume of almond skin. On the palate, the attack is rich but driven by a tantalising acidity. Balance is achieved with a long finish.

It will benefit from being decanted for 15 minutes and it can be cellared up until 2022 or beyond. It goes well with white fish, roast chicken, scallops and charcuterie. 100% Chardonnay

"This special Bourgogne Chardonnay develops a rare complexity. It has the “charme” and a teasing freshness that holds together a beautiful bouquet of flavours. A must for Burgundy lovers."

The “Clos des 6 Ouvrées” is handpicked; the grapes are sorted in the vineyard and then at the Domaine on the sorting table. After pressing, alcoholic fermentation begins in a concrete vat. It is then pumped into French oak barrels to undergo malolactic fermentation. A small percentage of 5% new oak is used, bringing a desirable freshness. The wine matures in oak barrels for twelve months, delivering a nice textural and round body to the wine. The wine is then bottled and released one year later.
