Pascal Clément was born in the village of Savigny-les-Beaune to a family of growers, where his father founded the Maison in 1950. After over 20 years as a grower and winemaker in the region – including his time at legendary Domaine Coche-Dury in Meursault - he launched his own micro-négoçiant project in 2012.

Pascal’s winemaking philosophy is very non-interventional. All the wines are fermented with native yeasts and undergo malolactic naturally (depending on vintage).

Farming: Organic

Winemakers: Pascal Clément

Grape Varieties: Chardonnay

Terroir: The Les Narvaux lieu-dit lies just above Les Genevrie`res (Premier Cru) at the top of the Meursault hill towards the west. At 900 feet elevation, it is one of the highest vineyards in the village with a steep slope. The vines average 45 years old on shallow clay limestone soils with some chalk oriented to the south-east.

Vinification: Pascal’s winemaking philosophy is very non-interventional. All the wines are fermented with native yeasts and undergo malolactic naturally. The wines rest in barrel with no lees stirring/ bâtonnage.

Aging: Aged 14 months in French oak.

Tasting notes: Tight lemon, lemon peel, green apple, anise on this vibrant, salty mineral-driven, flint licked, Meursault. Meursault’s generosity is evident on the palate, but the fine, grippy sides hold this tight and narrow through the lingering finish.
