Pale golden in colour. The nose displays perfumed aromas of citrus and orchard fruits and subtle hints of toast. On the palate this wine is elegant and satisfying with a marked minerality on the lengthy finish.

Coming from a single vineyard in Puligny Montrachet: 'Les Meix' is located just below the better known premier cru 'Les Pucelles.' This vineyard has a silty ground structure with gravel and calcareous clay soils, and sits at an altitude of 230-250 metres above sea level. The vineyards are farmed following 'lutte raisonnée' principles, meaning they avoid use of pesticides when possible and aim to make their wines sustainably. The Chardonnay vines are on average 50 years old.

Domaine Borgeot is situated in the village of Rémigny in the Côte de Beaune. Created in 1903, it is now run by the fourth generation of the Borgeot family: brothers Laurent and Pascal. Their 23 hectares of sustainably-farmed vineyards are in the villages of Bouzeron, Santenay, Chassagne-Montrachet and Puligny-Montrachet. The magic of Domaine Borgeot lies in the two people making these charming wines. As the saying goes in Burgundy, if you look at the person behind the wines, you will get an idea of the style of wine in your glass. Domaine Borgeot wines exhibit the calm and measured restraint of Pascal, balanced with the exuberance and liveliness of Laurent.
