Les Parcellaires de Saulx
- Bourgogne, Chambolle-Musigny, Côte de Beaune, Côte de Nuits, Gevrey-Chambertin, Meursault, Saint-Aubin, Vosne-Romanée, Burgundy, France
Although small, Les Parcellaires de Saulx is certainly a high quality négoce to watch with interest. Still in its formative years, the quality here is almost certain to rise as the winemaking team strive to get even more out of the individual plots they are working with."
—Andy Howard MW, Decanter
The talented Isabelle Laurand, a Burgundian, is the cellar master responsible for making more than thirty cuvées from the Côte de Beaune and Côte de Nuits each year for Les Parcellaires de Saulx, a micro-négociant, founded in 2017 by Denise Dupré and her husband, Mark Nunnelly. The winery is in Meursault and was previously known as Manoir Murisaltien. A négoce house has existed in this space since the beginning of the 19th century.
Each wine comes from a single parcel, emphasizing the work of the individual growers from whom Les Parcellaires de Saulx purchases must or wine. They only work with farmers who follow organic or biodynamic agriculture. In the cellar, no new oak is used and for most of the wines, only a single barrel is made.
The reds are thrilling representations of their appellations – with beautiful purity, pretty fruit, earthiness, silky tannins, and pronounced freshness. The whites are full of minerality, tension, and the right amount of weight and citrusy zip. - Michele Peters, French Portfolio Manager, Bowler.
