2020 Domaine Michelot Meursault, Burgundy, France
ABOUT THIS WINE
We make around 15,000 bottles a year of this blended wine which is produced from a number of parcels with very different soils. The land is a clay-limestone mix with those parcels at mid-slope having a rocky subsoil while those at the foot of the slope have a gravel subsoil. Other parcels have subsoils that are marl. The key to this wine lies in blending the different “terroirs” to create an opulent and fruity wine but with great finesse on the palate.
May be drunk as an aperitif but makes a marvelous accompaniment to fish and white meats. It should be drunk within 3 to 8 years after bottling.
ABOUT THIS PRODUCER
This winery 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. They appeal to all our clients, from private individuals to restaurateurs, who enjoy sharing the uplifting pleasures of good wine.
