Meursault

Meursault, situated just off the great wine route of the D973 in the heart of the Cote De Beaune, is the

white wine capital of Burgundy. The beauty of its 15th and 16th century houses matches the richness of its wine on the palate. A famous medieval town hall with its polychrome roof and the local church with its towering spire are the architectural focal points in its open main square, but its the winding ancient stone streets liberally studded with winemakers offering you their wares ‘pour degustation’ that make this village so special a place to stay.

Its relative size and the large number of winemakers offering tastings at their cellar doors make it a place one could easily spend a day or two in itself. And you don’t have to get in the car to enjoy the evenings too. With nine restaurants in the village, you can sample the local wine over dinner and stroll home afterwards.

But its also the perfect location from which to explore other famous villages and their wines. Lovely Puligny Montrachet and Auxey-Duresses are just a few kilometers and a stroll through the vineyards away, while the great red wine communes of Volnay and Pommard can be reached within minutes in a car. Beaune, the area’s biggest town with its wide range of shops, cafes, bars and restaurants, is a five minute drive away too.
