A family estate for several generations, the Meursault estates' family tree goes back to 1789. In 1974 Christian took over his parents' estate, with vines mainly in Meursault, and some of his father-in-law’s vines in Savigny-lès-Beaune, his son Christophe, joining him in 1995. Together they expanded the estate with plots in Meursault, Savigny-lès-Beaune, Chorey-lès-Beaune and Beaune. Today Christophe manages the estate, now totalling 9 hectares.
Domaine Christian Bellang Meursault 2017
Classic Meursault rich, fruity and toasty oak on the nose. On the palate think butter, rich fruit flavours and buttered toast. The wine has exceptional length and is well worth cellaring for up to 10 years.
Grapes are pressed by pneumatic press and the must is left to settle for 24-48 hours before racking. Both alcoholic and malolactic fermentation take place in barrel. Matured for 10 months in oak, 20% of which is new oak before bottling.
