Tasting Notes

Limozin is a Lieu Dit which is bordered by the great (and famous) Meursault Premier Cru Charmes and Premier Cru Genevrieres vineyards. On the palate, Paul Garaudet's Meursault Limozin boasts incredible length, viscosity, and minerality. The fruit lingers and is accentuated by the balanced acidity. The wine also features pronounced floral aromatics—French Chardonnay at its finest.


The Chardonnay is harvested at the peak of maturity. Once at the winery, a soft pressing is made, the must is finely racked then put in casks by gravity in the cellar, after which alcoholic and malolactic fermentations take place. A stirring of the lees in a barrel is carried out every 15 days during 12 to 18 months of maturation. It helps the wine to feed itself on its fine lees. The white wines are fined and lightly filtered in order to protect their purity and freshness.
