About Meursault 2016 Domaine Demougeot

Demougeot is a native of Burgundy who started his domaine in the heart of Meursault in 1992.  Today he has a total of almost 20 acres under vine and makes 14 different wines so there isn't much of any single wine.  There are no synthetic herbicides, pesticides or fertilizers used in the vineyards.  Much of the plowing is done with a horse and all harvest is by hand.  The farming is probably closer to biodynamic than organic but he follows neither with religious ferver, instead relying on his connection with the land to determine the methods that keep the land the healthiest and most lively.

The style here is one of classism and elegance.  The wines are gentle and never forced yet have a verve that allows them to age with ease. Fermentation is done in cement cuve. Elevage is relatively long at 18 months for both the red and whites.


Chardonnay grapes for this 2016 Meursault are sourced from three distinct parcels in three lieux-dits, namely ‘Les Chaumes, ‘Les Pellans’ and ‘Limouzin’. Vines are 18-60 years of age. Matured for 12 months in French oak barriques, 10% new. It shows hints of white peach and minerals on the nose. Elegant and bracing on the palate with beautiful notes of peach, apple, nectarine and minerality.
