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.
Enriched by grapes produced from the lieux–dits vineyards of Les Casse Têtes and Limozin, which give an added richness and intensity to the wine.
Matured in 15% new oak, a mix of 225lt and 600lt Demi–Muids. Very much in the classic Meursault style. A powerful bouquet with beautiful ripe fruit aromas. The mouthfeel is creamy and rich, with honey and nougat at the forefront, finely balanced with lime acidity and a long impressive finish. This is very much a Yorkshireman’s style of white Burgundy!
Delicious with pan roasted swordfish steaks with mixed peppercorn butter.
