"This ripe, fleshy wine has plenty of white fruit and peach flavors. These are balanced by acidity and the taut mineral texture that will allow the wine to age. Drink from 2020. -RV"

Product Description:

"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." - Winery
