Description

Situated just south of Volnay and Pommard in the Cote de Beaune Meursault is the most extensive southerly white wine commune of the Cote-d'Or. Surprisingly enough for an appellation of this quality, no Grand Cru exists, however the high quality of the 1er Cru more than compensates for this. An exclusive of Maison Louis Latour (monopole), the vineyards constituting the estate of the Chateau de Blagny are located high on the hillside overlooking Meursault and Puligny-Montrachet. Chateau de Blagny is the most important domaine in the commune.
