The word Meix means a house, Chavaux being a compression of chef and val, signifying “uphill from the valley”. This is where the vines lie, on gently sloping land which perfectly catches the rising sun. This wine was impossible to resist, and it makes sense to stock up on Meursault 2020s, as next year’s frost-affected offerings will be slim. Very old vines have given a green-gold wine with aromas which are crisp, clean and floral. Palate shows rich fruit, tight grain, with dry, well-balanced, long aftertaste (for drinking 2023-2028+).
