Pascal Clement’s father founded the Maison in 1950 in Savigny-les-Beaune, where Pascal was born. Pascal took over the family business in his own time, making a name for himself as a grower and winemaker in the region and launching his own micro-negociant project in 2012. Pascal’s approach to winemaking is natural and non-interventional, using native yeasts and letting the vintage guide his hand. He works in partnership with fifteen winegrowing friends across Burgundy who share his philosophy and respect for the soil, climate, and all the elements that define terroir. He personally selects and looks after the plots he chooses to work with. The wines age in a building that dates back to 1850, with a stunning arched cellar that houses 200 barrels.
The 2016 Meursault Les Narvaux opens in the glass with a youthfully reserved bouquet of crisp orchard fruit, honeysuckle and subtle hints of praline. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, deep and concentrated, with racy acids, chewy dry extract and a lovely sense of completeness, concluding with an elegantly chalky finish. Understated in style, this is an extremely good Meursault that's well worth seeking out.
