The village of Meursault also hosts one of the three glorious feasts of Burgundy during the third weekend of November. On the Monday after the Hospices de Beaune sale some 600 local growers and guests gather at noon for the Paulee de Meursault, an end-of-harvest feast revived in 1920 by Comte Jules Lafon. Everybody brings their own bottles to share with other tables.

Vinification: Part in new French oak barrels and balance in stainless steel tanks. 1/3 of the wine is aged in oak for 8-10 months.

Colour: Light gold with green tinges

Taste: This dry wine has fine lemony fruit with well integrated oak and a lovely length

Serve: Chilled, with chicken or veal in cream sauces and fish dishes
