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.
This wine boasts a lovely intensity and structure, hints of tropical fruit, honey, orange peel and grapefruit counterbalanced by a thrilling freshness and saline acidity. Quenching and energising in its structure, this is a complex and powerful Meursault with a lean tension that provides a thrilling counterbalance to the honeyed ripe fruit.
Great with smoked salmon and avocado sushi.
Yields of 42hl/ha were way above 2021. Fermented in used barrels before maturing for around 17 months in older oak.
