Meursault Blanc, Joseph Drouhin is wonderfully aromatic. A creamy palate with hazelnut butter, yellow plum and gingerbread. This is complemented by floral notes of linden, chamomile and hawthorn and a good amount of honey.

Meursault is located a few kilometers south of Beaune, in the celebrated terroir of Cote des Blancs (Slope of the Whites). Different types of soil are found here. The soil is deep and colourful around the village, but clearer and lighter at mid-slope and nearly white and very rocky in the upper reaches of the appellation. Plantation density is 10,000 stocks/ha in order to extract all possible nuances from the terroir. Yield of 49hl/ha, is kept low on purpose to limit the production of each vine stock.

Meursault is one of the oldest villages in Burgundy. The camp of Mont Milan, above the present village, was erected and settled in Neolithic times around 2,500 BC, before being occupied by the Gauls in 500BC and then the Romans. It was finally abandoned for the present location of the village built during the Gallo-Roman period, at which time the name Muris Saltus (Meursault) was given to it.
