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

This parcel, which lies at 220 metres above sea level, has a clay soil with a gravel subsoil. The exciting thing about the wine is that it comes from vines planted in the 1930s over an area of 1.39 hectares. This yields a regular character which is classic Meursault, fine and round but not cloying. And this character remains constant from year to year, no matter what the climatic conditions have been. The vines are very healthy and this parcel could easily attain its 100th birthday

Tasting Note

Light golden colour with green and gold reflections. Concentrated notes of classic white Burgundy such as yellow apple, white peach, lemon blossoms, lime zest over intricate notes of hazelnut crème, white mushroom, spun honey, white tea and vanilla. The near full-bodied palate deliver a round, slightly oily texture with flavours of beautifully concentrated yellow apple, lemon zest and white tea.

The wine should be drunk within 3 to 8 years after bottling.

Food Pairing

An excellent aperitif, this wine goes very well with light starters and cheeses.
