The Clos du Cromin is located on the north side of the Meursault vineyards, near the border of Volnay. Surrounded by dry-stone walls and with a south/south-east exposure, the soil is deep and rich in red clay, although there is still a lot of rock at the base of the vineyard. It’s a powerful terroir—a sunny site that ripens early, according to Marc Bachelet—and it is equally conducive to Chardonnay or Pinot Noir. Marc and Alex Bachelet work with a small 0.21-hectare parcel of vines here—half of the vines are reaching 100 years old (some of the oldest vines in Meursault), with the rest planted in 1998.
 

Alex Gambal, Patrick Javillier and J. Confuron-Cotetidot also farm this vineyard, although in our experience these growers craft a fleshier style of wine than the Pulingny-esque B.M. example. No reviews here, perhaps not surprising given how little wine was made in 2021, but you can expect a top-class fleshy and white Burgundy with notes of ripe pear, brown spice and then a vibrant, mineral finish with a twist of grip—a wonderfully precise and structured Meursault.
