This Bourgogne Chardonnay Grandes Gouttes is fresh with subtle fruits.

Domaine Rougeot has a long history of making superb white wines out of the famed village of Meursault. The “Les Grandes Gouttes” climat is located in the southern part of Meursault, next to Puligny-Montrachet. Whilst the vineyard did not qualify to be a village appellation, it makes a great regional appellation.

The wine has a subtle nose of white acacia flowers, fresh almonds and a hint of zest. It’s perfect to open when it’s young, in its first one to four years. It goes well with cured meat such as prosciutto or scallops with creamy sauce. 100% Chardonnay.

*Climat refers to a named plot of vineyard.

"We call the “Les Grandes Gouttes” the super-regional wine. Located at the border of the Meursault appellation, it takes a lot from its big brother the Meursault. It is the perfect everyday wine and it has been crafted with the same methods that Marc Rougeot uses for the Meursault. By experience, this wine needs at least 15 minutes decanting before serving because it is always very shy at first."

“Les Grandes Gouttes” is handpicked; the grapes are sorted in the vineyard and then at the Domaine on the sorting table. After being pressed, it begins its alcoholic fermentation and then malolactic fermentation in french oak barrels. A small percentage of 5% new oak is used for the “Les Grandes Gouttes”, bringing a desirable freshness. The wine matures in oak barrels for fifteen months, delivering a nice textural and round body to the wine. The wine is then bottled and released a few month after.
