Cellar for up to 15 years. Serve chilled.

Owned by the Michelot family for six generations, Domaine Michelot is currently run by young winemaker Nicholas Mefre who took over from his father aged just 23 in 2009. The domaine is traditional in its approach, but in recent years Nicholas has begun experimenting with vinifying a small amount of fruit from prized crus in concrete eggs. Oak influence is kept minimal overall, with just 20% new oak used for the remaining parcels aged in barrels.

This stunning Meursault comes from the Les Narvaux “lieu-dit” or named vineyard area. The plot is located on a slope at 300 metres of altitude above the famous Genevrières premier cru vineyards. This helps to give it a distinctive elegance and freshness, with extra depth and complexity from vinification in a combination of large casks and smaller barriques.

Enchanting hints of almond blossom, ripe peach and toasted almonds dominate on the nose, while the first sip reveals a brilliant acidity, well-rounded texture, and a solid core of orchard fruit flavours which linger on the tongue. The finish is refined and graceful, with hints of zingy lemon and mouthwatering freshness that acts as a great palate cleanser. Cellar for a few more years or enjoy now with roast chicken, salmon, or creamy pasta dishes.
