This Bourgogne Chardonnay Clos des six ouvrées is detailed, rich and fresh. Domaine Rougeot has a long history of making superb white wines out of the famed village of Meursault. Their "Clos des six ouvrées" vineyard is located within the Domaine's walls, at the base of the hill of Meursault, and mere metres from the “Les Chevalières” climat. It is the ideal location to grow great quality Chardonnay and this Bourgogne is often called the “Petit Meursault” within the range. This Clos (a vineyard surrounded by walls) is only producing six to eight barrels a year. The nose displays fine notes of wet stones, white peach, citrus and a delicate perfume of almond skin. On the palate, the attack is rich but driven by tantalising acidity. Balance is achieved with a long finish. It will benefit from being decanted for 15 minutes and it can be cellared up until 2023 or beyond. It goes well with white fish, roast chicken, scallops and charcuterie. 100% Chardonnay.
