Wow, what a wine – is this Meursault?! Situated in a side valley near the Côte de Beaune, this appellation produces delicious zippy wines given its cooler location. Purchased in 2012, their 0.26 ha plot is situated adjacent the Meursault appellation.

Domaine Denis Carré

This domaine was established by Denis Carré and his wife in 1974 with the first vintage produced in 1975. Situated in the heart of the village of Meloisey in the Hautes Côtes de Beaune, it covers 12ha in 12 different appellations. Although not certified, the domaine is farmed organically. It has been run by his son and daughter, Martial and Gaetane, since 2008. Full of energy and passion they are raising the quality of wines produced here at an impressive speed.
A punchy, vibrant and concentrated Burgundy possessing great depth of fruit, minerality and oak yet also showing great finesse and elegance. The impression is of a poise and power that seems to build and build, making it more akin to a Meursault or Chassagne. A superb wine.
A delicious accompaniement to turkey and chicken dishes.
