Meursault Rouge, Remoissenet Père & Fils

Located about five miles south of Beaune, the village of Meursault is rightly famed for its white wines. However, about one in every twenty-five bottles it produces is red. It is said that the name Meursault means ‘Mouse’s Jump’ because, in the past, the plots producing red wine would not have been separated from those producing white by more than a mouse’s jump. These Pinot Noir plots are situated to the north, close to Volnay on rocky soils with plenty of red clay. Only about 900 bottles are made each year; fermentation takes place in a single one ton oak vat and the wine is aged for 14 months in French oak barrels, one of the three is new! The wine shows plenty of elegance and finesse with aromas of red berries and black cherries.
