This Meursault Sous la Velle is refined, generous and complex.

Domaine Rougeot has a long history of making superb white wines out of the famed village of Meursault. The “Sous la Velle” climat is located at the foot of the Meursault hill opposite the Chateau de Meursault. In that part of Meursault, we find much richer soils and less limestone. These grapes usually ripen later than the grapes from the vineyards located on the slope of the Meursault hill.

The “Sous la Velle” shows great generosity at first, always opening up quickly and delivering plenty of white flowers, fresh white peach, almond flavours and buttery notes.

It goes well with poultry served with creamy sauce, foie gras, cured meat and a great range of seafood such as barramundi, lobster and crabs. Ready to drink or to cellar up until 2025+. 100% Chardonnay.

*Climat refers to a named plot of vineyard.

"The “Sous la Velle” represents the generosity that Meursault is well known for but with lots of energy. This wine delivers quickly in its youth the best of its terroir. Complex, round and tasty, it will be the perfect wine for every dinner occasion."

The “Sous la Velle” is harvested and sorted by hand in the vineyard. The grapes are then sorted a second time at the winery. The grapes are pressed gently with a pneumatic press for hours without the stems to be sure not to extract any vegetal flavours. The wine undergoes its alcoholic fermentation in a concrete vat and is then pumped into oak barrels. They use 10% new oak barrels to add extra body and richness to the wine. In order to complete its maturation, the wine spends fifteen months in oak barrels, then three months in a stainless steel vat and is then bottled.
