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

On the bouquet, the Michelot style is immediate – a lovely appealing richness and honeyed fruit style, with expansive notes of stewed white fruits, soft cream fudge, honey, cereal and a hint of minerality. The softly textured palate mirrors these flavours beautifully, with a steely quenching acidity that freshens the palate and leaves an impression of polished elegance and subtlety.

Vinification

Fermented in tank, then 80/20 transferred into a mixture of 500lt and 300lt oak barrels respectively, to age for 1 year, with older oak preferred.
