$158.00

“Sous la Velle” is located at the foot of the Meursault hill, opposite the Château de Meursault. The name translates to “under the village”. In this part of Meursault, the soils are richer, with less limestone. These grapes usually ripen later than the grapes from the vineyards located on the slope of the Meursault hill. Regarding production, manual harvesting, direct pneumatic pressing of uncrushed whole bunches, cold settling for two days, alcoholic fermentation with indigenous yeasts and malolactic fermentation in barrels set the tone. The wine is then racked into stainless steel vats, left to rest for one month, before filtration and bottling. No sulphur is used in production or bottling.

The “Sous la Velle” is initially generous, always opening up quickly and delivering plenty of white flowers, fresh white peach and almond flavours in its youth. It pairs excellently alongside poultry served with creamy sauces, foie gras, cured meats and a great range of seafood such as barramundi, lobster and crabs. Decant for 30 minutes prior to serving or age till 2023+. 100% Chardonnay.

“Sous la Velle” represents the generosity that Meursault is well known for. 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. They are pressed gently with a pneumatic press for hours. The wine undergoes its alcoholic fermentation in a vat and is then pumped into oak barrels for 18 months before bottling. Some new oak (15%) is used to add extra body and richness to the wine.
