The "Les Toisières" is a full-bodied and fresh Chardonnay.

Domaine Rougeot has a long history of making superb white wines out of the famed village of Meursault. “Les Toisières” climat* is located right over the road from Meursault and “La Taupine” 1er Cru Red of Monthélie. It is an ideal location and the vineyard is south facing, facilitating great ripeness.

On the nose, it develops some complex flavours of melon, apple and fresh young hazelnuts. It is at its peak two to three years from the vintage, however, it can be cellared for eight to ten years.

Don’t hesitate to open the bottle now and decant it for 35 minutes before serving. It goes really well with seafood such as lobster, prawns and an array of cured meat, terrine, chicken and roast pork. 100% Chardonnay.

*Climat refers to a named plot of vineyard.

"A cousin of Meursault as we say it. The “Les Toisières” is an amazing value and delivers complexity, roundness and fresh, clean finish. Perfect for your aperitif or with the prawns on the barbecue."

The grapes are harvested by hand and sorted in the vineyard. When the grapes arrive at the winery, they are destemmed and gently brought to the press. After a long and gentle press cycle, the must* is pumped into a concrete tank to undergo its alcoholic fermentation. The “Les Toisières” is vinified like a Meursault, with a long maturation in oak barrels for fifteen months. However, there are no new oak barrels used, so that the wine can express its terroir as much as possible.

*Must is the term for freshly pressed juice that for a red wine contains the skins, seeds and stems of the fruit. For a white wine must only refers to the juice.
