Chateau de Meursault was our next winery of choice. This one offered a self guided tour of the property which is now a small museum. The roots of the family that owns this Chateau are traced back to the 12th century. The main Chateau is still being used as the primary residence, but the cellars, the gardens and the old house are worth exploring. The end of the tour, was followed by 6 more wines to taste, equally as elegant and as fancy as the last one. We also got to keep the glasses just like we did at Chateau de Pommard, which means we now have 4 wine glasses at home. Two hours later we walked out with another box of wine.
The cellars below the main courtyard have over 800,000 bottles of wine and about 800 barrels of the same, aging and getting ready for consumption. Judging by the price of the wines at this winery and the amount of wine stored in the caves there is roughly about €5o million of wine here. That just boggles my mind! There are rooms upon rooms filled with hundreds of thousands of bottles of wine.
OK, so now you have our attention…sounds amazing
There are two cases of small Chateau wonder sitting in the house waiting – just say when!
