Practicing organic. From the higher section of Poruzots-Dessus, directly adjacent to Les Genevrières. 70+ year old vines in clay-limestone soils. Indigenous yeast is used.  Aged in barrel (25% new); finished in tank for 6 months before bottling.

Arnaud Tessier loves his vineyards. His work ethic has become famous around town, with many of his fellow producers conceding that he has some of the most immaculate vineyards in all of Meursault. There are no gimmicks with his wines; it is Arnaud and his vineyards, period.

The holdings here have always been some of the best, with prime parcels in the best crus of the village, including Charmes-Desuss (directly adjacent to Comtes Lafon’s parcel), Poruzot-Dessus, and Genevrieres-Dessus. The vineyard work is fully organic with constant ploughing. In the cellar, he is assisted by his wife, Catherine, who uses indigenous yeasts for the fermentation and allows the wines to go through a long and slow élevage. The work that this dynamic duo put in have put them squarely in the conversation among the top producers of Meursault.
