MEURSAULT 1er Cru Sous le Dos d'Âne 2021

The stone mound extracted from the vines of this sector can make you think of the back of a donkey with the reflection of the light. It can simply evoke a movement of land or its relief. Harvest of the Domain.

Tasting notes
A fresh and fleshy wine on the attack with notes of verbena and white fruits that quickly give way to a beautiful smoothness in the middle of the mouth and a saline and mineral finish.
Food and wine pairings
A pretty bottle to pair with crayfish quenelles with Nantua sauce or Scallops just seared, chestnut shavings cooked in butter and thyme


"Replanted with Chardonnay in 1995. Floral aroma to a tight, and mineral palate, which shimmers. Fine, steely core and a salty finish"

"Palish yellow, a little bit of barrel toast, though better integrated than the Abbaye de Morgeot is currently. Then a little lemon scent. The style of the 2020 vintage delivers significant weight. White fruit, long fleshy finish with plenty of energy. Very good."
