Since December, 2012, the Château de Meursault was acquired by the Halley family, also owners of the Château de Marsannay in Côte de Nuits and Marché aux Vins in Beaune. Over the years, the owners have made extensions and considerably developed the vineyard which became one of the most prestigious domains of the Côte-d’Or. The vineyard extends on nearly 160 acres from Puligny-Montrachet to Aloxe-Corton, including eighteen Premier Crus and three Grands Crus.
 
Château de Meursault welcomes every day the lovers of great Burgundy wines for visits and tastings. Since 1977, visitors discover the beautiful park. They enjoy tasting the Château wines in the monastic atmosphere of the vaults that date back to the 12th century.
 
The wine shop situated in Château has a wide range of Crus starting from 1973 vintage that are available in bottles, magnums, jeroboams and mathusalems.
 
Château de Meursault is also a place of sharing and culture. Its reception hall that can hold up to 350 people, welcomes every year the famous Paulée de Meursault, an essential not-to-be-missed event that follows the famous Hospices de Beaune Wines Auctions. Other events such as concerts of classical music or the Banné take place in this hall. It is also possible to organise tastings, seminars, cocktails and dinners for individuals and businesses.
