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

The bouquet is immediately impressive – rich, unctuous and powerful with honeyed peach, a touch of apricot puree, pineapple and toffee. In the mouth the texture is opulent and concentrated, with a stoney minerality that supports the powerful and brooding fruit. The acidity is marked and holds the tension of the wine wonderfully in the mouth, adding to the long and muscular finish.

Vinification

Produced in a mixture of 70% barrique (228lt) of which 50% is new, and 30% large oak barrels, of which 15% is new.
