Finding both quality and quantity in the finest Domaines in Burgundy is not easy. Domaine Michelot however boasts a total of 19 hectares of vines and they apply the most natural methods possible to optimise the quality of the grapes. Their wines are simply delicious and display the finest characteristics of Meursault. Jean-Francois Mestre has been in charge since 1993 but increasingly his son Nicolas drives the winemaking with a focus on crystalline purity of fruit and expression of terroir.
“Wonderfully intense nose of zesty citrus, orchard fruit, bay leaf and menthol. Fresh apples and star anise, really pleasing suggestion of spice and grip on the palate. Depth and concentration – layer after layer of rich stone fruit with a beautiful acidity – balance is spot on. Savoury alongside the fruit on the lengthy finish. A real highlight from Meursault.”
