Domaine du Pavillon is located south of Pommard, in the heart of Côte de Beaune. Meursault is one of the flagship wine villages and amongst the most reputed in Burgundy, it's known as the capital of Burgundian white wine.

The Domaine du Pavilion winery was modernised in 2016 to ensure the best quality production of this bright straw yellow wine with fruity yellow plum and pear aromas. The barrel ageing has added a little brioche note and texture to the finished wine. It balances the crisp acidity so it's ready to drink now, or will lie down for 3-5 years, or more. Expect a long aromatic finish and a good match to seafood, chicken or creamy rich cheese.

This beautiful Meursault is made from grapes sourced from five spots in the Domain Pavilion vineyards with different but complementary characteristics.

The Producer

The Bichot family settled in the Chateau of Châteauneuf-en-Auxois, Burgundy in 1350. The family’s coat of arms has not changed since nor has its symbol, a doe, or biche in French. Their wine heritage started in 1831 with Bernard who was a wine trader. It was his son, Hippolyte, who brought the first vines in Volnay and grandson, Albert, who rooted the Bichot name in Beaune from which the family business escalated. Since 1996 Bichot has been under Albéric Bichot who is completely focused on developing the future of the company without compromising family tradition or quality.

Crab Cakes

The delicate crab meat calls for a smooth, fruity, floral white or rosé which doesn't overpower the meat - try Southern French rosés with good weight of fruit or a quality Burgundian Chardonnay. We'd head straight to Meursault.

Gorgonzola stuffed Chicken Breast wrapped in Pancetta

Plump for a ripe, fruity white such as Albert Bichot's Domaine du Pavillon, Meursault to contrast with the salty tang that the pancetta and cheese bring to the dish.
