This buttercup-colored Meursault 'Clos du Cromin' has a very airy, fresh scent, revealing floral aromas with dominant white flowers, notes of toast and fresh hazelnuts due to its 14-month aging in French oak barrels. It gives a nice freshness in the mouth, a minerality surrounded by balanced honey tones. It is velvety soft with a powerful full texture and an exceptional length.
After harvesting, when the grapes are fully ripe, the grapes are gently pressed in a pneumatic press. The must is poured at night in oak barrels of which 30% new oak. Fermentation starts naturally with native yeast and bacteria. After maturing for 14 months, the wine undergoes fine filtration using a membrane filter and is then bottled by gravity.

Clos du Cromin is located in the northeast of the village, close to the 1st Cru "Santenots". The stone walls of this closed vineyard and the Burgundian origin of the name "Clos" attest to the presence of quarries on this site long ago.
