Christian Bellang: The Meursault Estate

The Meursault Estate is a family-owned wine estate with a rich history that dates back to 1789. It is situated in the renowned wine regions of Meursault and Savigny lès Beaune in France. The baton of this heritage-rich estate was passed on to Christian in 1974, who took over from his parents and expanded the vineyards with his son Christophe, who joined him in 1995. Today, Christophe manages the expanded estate, which now covers a total of 9 hectares. The vineyard is a beautiful blend of red and white wines, almost evenly balanced. The vines, aged around 30 years on average, are nurtured with utmost care and diligence, ensuring the production of high-quality wines. The Meursault Estate takes pride in its deep roots and the legacy it carries forward with each bottle of wine produced. The family's commitment to preserving the traditional winemaking practices while adapting to modern techniques has resulted in wines that are not only rich in flavor but also carry the essence of their history.

Christian Bellang, Meursault "Les Tillets", 2021

Renowned for its quality and craftsmanship, the Meursault Les Tillets showcases the expertise of Christian Bellang. The vineyard, known as Les Tillets, is situated high on the slope in the Meursault appellation. This unique position results in a cooler microclimate, allowing for wines that encapsulate a unique freshness and vibrancy.

The Christian Bellang Meursault Les Tillets presents a rich gold hue when poured, accompanied by an aromatic nose filled with lively citrus notes, such as lemon and grapefruit. These vibrant scents are intertwined with undertones of white flowers, green apple, and a hint of mineral complexity. Subtle hints of oak, a tribute to its careful aging in French oak barrels, add notes of vanilla and a slight toastiness.

The taste profile of the Meursault Les Tillets mirrors its aromatic profile, as a medium to full-bodied white wine filled with fresh citrus and crisp orchard fruits. A beautiful balance exists between the typical richness of Meursault and the vibrant acidity of Les Tillets, resulting in a wine that is both balanced and complex. The mineral aspect underlines the fruit characteristics, adding a depth that persists into the finish.

The balance of fruit, acidity, and structure in this wine makes it versatile for food pairings. It complements a variety of dishes, from grilled white fish to poultry in creamy sauces. As it ages, it develops depth and complexity, introducing notes of honey and dried fruits.

In conclusion, the Christian Bellang Meursault Les Tillets highlights the expressive potential of Burgundy's Chardonnay. It offers a captivating blend of fruit, minerality, and elegance, making it a prime selection for any wine enthusiast.
