Les Chevalières is a lieu-dit lying behind the town of Meursault in the valley leading towards Auxey-Duresses. It is one of several lieux-dits in Meursault that perform above their official “village” level status. The soil of Les Chevalières is very stony and the wine typically displays a strong mineral character, firm acidity, and piercing tension.
The wines are very delicate, supple, racy, elegant, mineral and fresh to the mouth at the beginning. Then, warm and fat they show great wealth with many flavours of fruit, grills, with honey at the end. The nose is flowery with a discreet note of vanilla. Silky, delicate, and elegant
