The Meursault and the Puligny-Montrachet chardonnays are luxury wines that are known for their exquisite tastes. How do they get that texture and complexity? The wines are fermented in oak and then aged in leftover yeast. The yeast works on the remains and adds a unique flavor to the beverage.

This complex arrangement adds the unique tastes of citrus, white stone, tropical fruit, oak, spice and savory flavors. It really depends on the ultimate flavor the wine maker is aiming fir. Choosing the right ingredients gives you the exotic taste of wines that is needed to create the perfect beverage.
