Meursault is a wine appellation in the Burgundy region of France that straddles the N74 a few kilometres south of the city of Beaune. It is confined to the commune of Meursault. Both still white and still red wines are permitted here.
The appellation was first proclaimed in 1937 and has become particularly famous for the bold white wines made from Chardonnay that are produced here.
White wines can be made from either Chardonnay or Pinot Blanc but very few producers use the second grape here. Red wines are made from Pinot Noir with the optional addition of small quantities of Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc and Pinot Gris.
