Marc-Emmanuel Cyrot is a fourth generation of a wine-growers in Pommard. Géraldine Cyrot Miller, of Swiss and British nationalities, was born in London, grew up in Switzerland and settled in Burgundy, more than 25 years ago.  They are both studdied wine and spirits and have extensive experience working in the trade.  They married in 2004, have two children and created their distribution company ARVINE in 2006 in order to conciliate family life and work. For the anecdote, the name is a nod to Géraldine’s origins as it comes from a native grape variety from Valais, the Swiss region where she comes from.

In this spirit of family business, Géraldine and Marc-Emmanuel have been distributing more than 20 family estates in Burgundy, from Chablis to Mâcon.  After several years of partnership with some of the best producers, they have selected wines from the most famous appellations of Burgundy, under their own label.  Looking for authentic and high-quality products, they taste and select their wines with utmost care. “Giving them our names requires a true commitment. This is why only our favorites will be labeled Miller-Cyrot”.

Tasting Notes

Pronounced aromas of ripe stone and bright citrus fruit mingle with toasted almonds and hazelnuts, a bouquet of mayflower, elder,
bracken, lime, verbena.  There is a mineral (flint) note as well as butter, honey.  The palate is rich and fat with a cheerful and appealing taste of hazelnut.  The wine strikes that fine balance of unctuousness and freshness.   This structured white will develop if one has the patience to cellar it.  A wine like this as a natural affinity for shellfish, rich fish dishes and white meats like veal or poultry in white sauces.  Even blue cheeses and foie gras take to it immediately.  Ideally serve at 12 to 14°C.  

Method

Meursault is the largest village in the Cote d’Or, it is located in the southern part of the Cote d’Or; the Cote de Beaune and lies in the centre of a broad coomb (a dry valley in a limestone escarpment).  This village appellation produces mostly white wines from Chardonnay and over one-quarter of if it’s production is Premier Cru.  Though one doesn’t need to go to a Premier Cru ranked wine to get exceptional quality; the strength of Meursault is its high quality village level wines.  It is so popular that when some people are looking for a “white Burgundy” they simply ask for Meursault (considering how many white wine producing appellations there are in Burgundy, this speaks to the quality assurance and popularity of Meursault).  This being said, Meursault, despite being a village level wine, is far from the ” “cheap and cheerful” category and is very much a luxury wine meant to be savoured with intention. 

Wine writer Matt Kramer wrote, “If gold were a flavor. it would taste like Meursault.”  

This wine is matured in Vosges & Allier oak barrels for 12 to 14 month and filtration on Kieselguhr earth.
