This wine comes from the village of Cless on land located in the heart of the appellation. The vines average 65 years in age and are planted on a slope to the south-east shelf called "The Mount". The altitude and good drainage of this Mount preserve the freshness of the grapes. Presses are located amidst the 15 hectares of The Mount, and the grapes are pressed without transport or delay on the site of the harvests. This wine is mostly vinified in stainless steel tanks and 20 from the oldest vines are fermented and aged in oak barrels of 450 or 600 liters. Bottling takes place at the end of spring.

It has been said that in partnership, the result is harmony. Through a lifetime of building relationships in the vineyards of Burgundy, Pierre Meurgey has proven this a steadfast rule. A native Burgundian, fourth generation wine trader, and former director of operations of a well-known ngociant in Beaune, Pierre enjoys friendships with the top vintners and vineyard managers in Burgundy to source the finest grapes for his two labels Pierre Meurgey and Meurgey-Croses, the latter a tribute to his mother Marie-Thrse Croses. Pierre is omnipresent in the vineyards from pruning to bud- break to harvest, offering his expertise in organic and biodynamic agriculture while working tirelessly with vineyard managers to oversee the plots destined to become his signature Cote d'Or and Mconnais wines.

Master of Wine Clive Coates once wrote that a feature of Meurgey wines is the total absence of a Meurgey Signature. In a region where 'terroir' is paramount, this may be one of the highest compliments one can receive and a testament to the value of preserving a sense of place as opposed to a homogenized, 'cookie-cutter' winemaking style. Pierre's purist philosophy has evolved even further at Meurgey-Croses with the sovereign belief that the Maconnais and its individually unique regions will be home to an entirely new and soulful renaissance of White Burgundy production.
