This winery has been in the Michelot family for six generations and, having increased in size over the years, now comprises more than 19 hectares which include a number of prestigious 1er cru wines.
The Meursault vineyards are made up of a number of “terroirs” – parcels of land with individual characteristics of soil, drainage and orientation – and their distinct personalities yield a diverse range of wines.
In the traditional school of wine-making in Meursault, few are given more respect than Domaine Michelot. Their ability to develop the bouquet on his ripening Meursault is amazing and the Sous-la-Velle is a particularly good example.
The domaine achieved widespread recognition in the 60s under the direction of the charismatic Bernard Michelot and this spirit and tradition flourished and grew in the hands of the current generation, Jean-François and Nicolas Mestre, who now run the family Domaine. The Domaine is currently going through an organic conversion.
