This cuvée is a blend of grapes harvested from the “Les Byots” vineyard and the “Les Montaigus” site. The age of the vines for this bottling are between 15 and 40+ years. The “Byots” portion brings strength and structure to the blend while the vines in the “Montaigu” site, at higher altitude, add elegance and lift to this wine.
The Domaine du Meix Foulot has been in the hands of the de Launay family for multiple generations. Paul de Launay took the reins during the 1960s and began to bottle an increasingly important percentage of the wine produced at the domaine. Now, in the mid-1990s, his daughter, Agnes, joined the domaine and is now solely responsible for this exceptionally beautiful and historic domaine. This is one of the most picturesque of Burgundian domaines: situated high on a hill overlooking the entirety of Mercurey and surrounded by the gently sloping vineyards of the estate. The Domaine du Meix Foulot is also one of the most important domaines in Mercurey, in terms both of size and excellence, with an imposing collection of vineyards that capture the full range of this underappreciated appellation.
