There's no disputing that this complex, persistent and rich Meursault Premier Cru was made for top gourmet cuisine. More info

This Meursault premier cru produced on a clay and limestone soil has empyreumatic, floral and liquorice notes. The rich and varied bouquet hints at fullness and minerality on the palate. The wine has a long finish in a fresh, rich register. In order to achieve this, Philippe Pacalet presses the grapes whole without allowing the lees to settle before placing them directly into Burgundy pièces (228-litre barrels). He carries out alcoholic and then malolactic fermentation. This explains the slightly toasted notes.

Meursault 1er Cru Charmes Philippe Pacalet serve at a temperature of 13°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Fricassée de volaille à l'ancienne, Poisson de rivière sauce au beurre blanc, Risotto aux bolets.

    Information about domain Philippe Pacalet

    Enologist and nephew of Marcel Lapierre, Philippe Pacalet has been producing top-quality wines since 2001. The key to the success of his négociant business is his desire to best express the terroir, his meticulous vinifications, non-interventionist methods and his discerning use of minimal doses of sulphur. His extremely natural wines have stunning balance and for the most part, excellent aging potential.
