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.
The bouquet is savoury rich and showing grapefruit and lime cordial. The palate follows this, with a rich and balanced mouthfeel – the notes of honey, pink grapefruit, cereal and wet stones shows great intensity, kept taut with razor sharp acidity and restraint. Utterly beguiling and a wine of great power and complexity.
Delicious with pan roasted swordfish steaks with mixed peppercorn butter.
Fermented in tank and barrel, with 10% new oak and using a variety of barrels – 40% in 500lt foudres, 40% in traditional Burgundy 228lt barriques, and 20% in clay eggs.
