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.
Ripe, tropical with honeyed fruit and accompanying lime zest. A weightier and defined wine with floral notes, dessert apple and some honey. This is rich on the palate but elegant and quite delicate towards the finish.
Try with halibut with mixed beans and lemon butter sauce.
