Producer and Tasting Notes


Domaine Michelot

Domaine Michelot 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 domaine achieved widespread recognition in the 60s under the direction of the charismatic Bernard Michelot and this spirit and tradition flourishes and grows in the hands of the current generation. 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.

Tasting Notes

A flowery, blossom like bouquet, this is Meursault in all but name with a lovely nuttiness and butteriness on the palate. A very enjoyable wine.

Food Matches

Great with smoked salmon and avocado sushi.
