Meix-Foulot, Mercurey

Categories: ,

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; his daughter Agnes joined the domaine and is now solely responsible for this exceptionally beautiful and historic estate. 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. 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 under-appreciated appellation.There are 20 hectares of vineyards, all sited within the confines of Mercurey. Ninety percent of the vines are planted to Pinot Noir, with the remainder is planted to Chardonnay.
