Domaine Michelot Bourgogne Blanc
The fruit for this Bourgogne Blanc is sourced from parcels situated exclusively within the Meursault commune.
The grapes are manually harvested before being moved to the winery in specially designed stainless steel bins. The grapes are then lightly crushed then pressed, light, cold racked for 6 to 12 hours before the juice goes into casks for fermentation, followed by malolactic fermentation. The wine is then matured in oak barrels (15% new) for 10 to 12 months.
Light golden colour, limpid and crystalline, often with greenish highlights. In the Yonne, Bourgogne blanc often develops aromas of gunflint or field mushroom. In the Côte-d’Or it is hazelnut with a hint of honey, butter, bracken, spices and sugared chestnuts. In the Saône-et-Loire notes of white flowers (hawthorn, acacia) and flint abound. On the palate it is aromatic, delicate but not over-light, full without being heavy, unctuous and firm, dry and caressing, well-rounded and quite deep, not overly structured yet persistent.
