The “Sous la Velle” climat is located at the foot of the Meursault hill, opposite the Chateau de Meursault. It means “Under the village”. In that part of Meursault, we find much richer soils and less limestone. These grapes usually ripen later than the grapes from the vineyards located on the slope of the Meursault hill. The “Sous la Velle” shows great generosity at first, always opening up quickly and delivering plenty of white flowers, fresh white peach and almond flavours in its youth. It goes well with poultry served with creamy sauce, foie gras, cured meat and a great range of seafood such as barramundi, lobster and crabs. Cellar it for three to five years to get it at its peak. If not, decant it for 30 minutes prior to serving.
The “Sous la Velle” is harvested and sorted by hand in the vineyard. The grapes are then sorted a second time at the winery. They are pressed gently with a pneumatic press for hours. The wine undergoes its alcoholic fermentation in a vat and is then pumped into oak barrels. They use 15% new oak barrels to add extra body and richness to the wine. In order to complete its maturation, the wine spends 18 months in oak barrels without batonnage and is then bottled.
