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.
Vineyard & Vinification Note
15,000 bottles a year is made of this blended wine, which is produced from a number of parcels with very different soils. The land is a clay limestone mix with those parcels mid-slope having a rocky subsoil while those at the foot of the slope have a gravel subsoil. Other parcels have subsoils which are marl.
The key to this wine lies in the blending of the different “terroirs” to create a wine which is opulent and fruity but with great finesse on the palate.
Honey, toasty oak, pastry, lime and hazelnut flavours. Beautifully balanced, vibrant, rich, ending with a mouth-watering finish.
May be drunk as an aperitif but makes a marvellous accompaniment to fish and white meats.
It should be drunk within 3 to 8 years after bottling
