Village: Saint-Romain
Level: Village
AOC: Saint-Romain

Tasting

Pale yellow colour with green tones. A lot of precision in the nose (lime, hint of grapefruit), followed by a mouth where finesse and intensity combine. The altitude of the terroirs allow it to keep its fresh minerality throughout, defining a beautiful Burgundy.

Food matching

Oysters, octopus salad with coriander, grilled fish, thai spicy soup.

History

This wine is named after a generous benefactor, Joseph Menault, who donated vineyards to the Hôtel-Dieu in 1992. All the vines needed replanting, and this took place in 1994 (le village haut) and 1998 (Sous la Velle). The village of Saint-Romain is situated in a precipitous cleft of hills, just west of Meursault. Over half of this Cuvée comes from a steeply-sloping vineyard, Le Village Haut, located above 400 metres, near the highest point of Saint-Romain. The balance comes from Sous la Velle, 50 meters lower down. Previous vintages tasted display intense perfume, raciness and minerality.

Terroirs

Le Village Haut 0,43 ha.,

Sous la Velle 0,33 ha.
