Ropiteau Hautes-Côtes De Beaune 2014
|Côte de Beaune, Burgundy|
The arrival of the railway in Meursault in 1848, incites Jean Ropiteau to found his own wine house. Aged 24, this winemaker from Monthélie , whose Burgundian roots date back to the 16th century, has sensed that this new means of transport would permit him to make Burgundy wines famous throughout the world. His vision resulted in success and soon the name Ropiteau became a synonymous to the great white Burgundy wines.
Situated in Meursault, the cellars from the XVth and XVIIth century are among the most prestigious in Burgundy and are a former property of the Hospices de Beaune. With about 900 barrels in its cellars, Ropiteau Frères is today one of the biggest producers of oak matured white wine in Burgundy.- Extract from Ropiteau's website
