Freddy Meuneveaux, 4th generation owner of the family winery in Aloxe-Corton, took over full-time in 2013 and has since had great success in using modern techniques to achieve critical acclaim for his wines. Freddy is vigilant about protecting the environment and using natural methods including a strict policy against herbicides and insecticides, fermenting with indigenous yeasts, and transferring wine to barrel by gravity rather than pumps. 85% of the wines produced from their six hectares are red including Grand Crus Corton-Perrières and Corton-Bressandes, and one the three whites is the relatively rare Grand Cru Corton Blanc. Stylistically, Allen Meadows (Burghound.com) puts it well when he says, “The wines are built to age but they're not hard.”
Beaune Les Reversees
Not the village’s most well-known producer but certainly one to watch. and I was absolutely smitten by Meuneveux’s Corton-Bressandes—one of the best that I tasted from the appellation.
