This Estate has been in the Michelot family for six generations and 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 winemaking in Meursault, few are given more respect than Domaine Michelot. 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.

Vineyard & Vinification Note

The parcels which make our Meursault 1er Cru Genevrières lie at the very heart of the village’s great 1ers Crus hillside. Here the soil is clay/limestone with a subsoil that varies between fallen rock, volcanic rock and white limestone. We cultivate two parcels at the mid-slope level, between 250 metres and 275 metres above sea level. One is right in the centre of the hillside and the other on the border with the Meursault 1er Cru Poruzot vineyards to the west. A regular slope of between 10 and 25% assures good exposure to the sun.

Tasting Note

The wine is a fine example of the Meursault style with great finesse, mineral notes, opulence and a beautiful finish that never becomes heavy. Usually, the wine should be drunk within 5 to 10 years after bottling.

Food Pairing

It goes well with foie gras, poultry, white meats and fatty cheeses.
