Pierre Meurgey is a fourth-generation winemaker. His half-Mâcon and half- Beaune roots are expressed through two signatures; By Meurgey-Croses and By Pierre Meurgey, respectively. For his Mâcon wines, Pierre works with only one origin per appellation, controlling the date and conditions of the harvest. The alcoholic fermentation and ageing all take place in vats – 400 or 600 litre demi-muids – or 228-litre oak barrels depending on the appellation. In his Beaune production, the grapes are partially or totally destemmed, then vinified in open vats. Regular pumping over produces wines with ripe fruit flavours, balanced by the freshness imparted by the clay-limestone soils. The wines are then aged for 10 to 18 months in French oak barrels, with a reasoned proportion of new barrels.

Pierre has been recognized for his incredible Chardonnays. The Pouilly Fuissé Vieille Vignes is produced from 5 plots with an average age of 75 years, located in the commune of Pouilly. Fermentation and ageing take place entirely in Burgundian oak barrels, 25% of which are new. In contrast, the Corton Charlemagne Grand Cru is produced from vines on the rare, south-west facing portion of the Corton mountain, on the border between the Côte de Nuits and the Côte de Beaune. It is matured in Burgundian oak barrels, 50% of which are new.
