Introduction : In 2000, Arnaud and his wife Hélène bought the Château de Melin, located on the town of Auxey-Duresses, and decide to settle the family estate vineyards. The Château de Melin currently operates 22 hectares of vineyards and produces 22 appellations: 20 in the Côtes de Beaune and 2 in the Côtes de Nuits areas. The vinification process still takes place in our winery in Sampigny-les-Maranges. However, the aging and bottling of the wines is accomplished in their cellars at the Château.

Tasting notes: The Terroir of «Les Grands Charrons » is very typical of Meursault. Limpid and brilliant, it exhibits silvery highlights. Its bouquet has strong aromas of ripe grapes. On the palate it is rich and fat. Unctuousness and freshness are in silky balance. Long and structured, it needs time to mature.
Serving temperature : 12 – 14 °C
Food pairing : Its aromatic power and exceptional balance between fat and acidity make it an aristocrat among burgundies. Unsurprisingly, it has a natural affinity with noble and fine-textured fish or meat, which it can match without overpowering. It performs a similar feat with joints of veal or poultry in white sauce, which are rendered sublime by the wine’s unctuous texture and long, distinguished acidity.
