The word Meix means a house, Chavaux being a compression of chef and val, signifying “uphill from the valley.” This is where the vines lie, on gently sloping land which perfectly catches the rising sun. “This wine’s concentration comes from the dry summer giving small grapes” said Franck, adding “I only have 4½ barrels – where normally I make 8 or 10.” Colour is green-golden, the nose being honeyed and full of savour. Palate is wellstructured, densely fruity and splendidly vivacious. Its balancing acidity is a pure delight, its length totally captivating. No lover of classic Meursault can fail to be seduced by this lovely wine (for drinking 2017-2024+).
