Assembled from 9 different plots, which form 3 distinct cuvees, subsequently blended after fermentation, all with differing aspects of soil, microclimate and aspect. This wine is enriched by grapes produced from the lieux–dits vineyards of Les Casse Têtes and Limozin near Volnay, which give an added richness and intensity.

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 intense and forward, with notes of ripe golden fruit and lemon zest. The palate is rich, exotic and powerful, layered with complex cereal, honeyed fruit, dessert apple and a lovely minerality that supports the exotic fruit. Taut and lean toward the finish hints at a good ageing ability.
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. 35% in 500lt foudres, 40% in traditional Burgundy 228lt barriques, and 20% in clay eggs. A new addition from the 2021 vintage was the use of glass to ferment a proportion in.
