Named after the small walled vineyard (‘Clos’) that lies huddled down to the front of the estate, this sheltered 0.94ha site enjoys an extra 1°C degree of temperature, adding richness, mouthfeel and concentration. The late Bernard Michelot claimed that he always felt that extra degree of warmth after he jumped over the wall, returning from seeing his girlfriend in the early hours, after breaking the evening curfew during the 2WW!

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 screaming with aromatic grapefruit and tropical fruit aromas, with an underlying touch of honey. The palate is rich in texture with a piercing acidity giving balance, and a little savoury on the finish. This wine epitomizes the white wine of this vintage – ‘Seveux’ – a sense of concentrated freshness.
Try with halibut with mixed beans and lemon butter sauce.
