Les Meix Chavaux

"Meix" means a land around the house, the heart of the farm. "Chavaux" means a small valley before a river.

After a cold and dry start to the year, temperatures rose quickly at the end of March, triggering a rapid resumption of the growing cycle. A few morning frosts impacted part of the vineyard at the end of April but without major damage. The flowering period takes place in a few days at the beginning of June in superb weather. The summer is hot and sunny but delivers some welcome storm rain to help the plant enter the veraison stage. The harvest takes place at the beginning of September with ideal weather and impeccable health quality of the grapes.


The terroir is oriented North-East, in the north of the village, near Auxey-Duresses.

Tasting note

Very typical from Meursault, a little tense, with a beautiful acidity. Not very sensitive to over maturity. It's a sappy wine and energise with a good balance.
Can be aged.
Ideal for an unostentatious Meursault lover.



Should be drunk between
