DOMAINE MICHELOT Meursault-Perrieres 1er cru 2014

This wine is made from two parcels which are found on the border of the communes of Meursault and Puligny-Montrachet. The first, which is to the left of the Clos des Perrières, has clay/limestone soil and a subsoil of volcanic rock which allows a healthy root system to develop in this limestone-rich environment. The second is on the upper slope and overlooks the Perrières quarry. Here the soil is heavily limestone, partly as marl and partly as white rock. This is interesting for the way it brings mineral notes to the wine. During tastings it often find notes of white pepper and other spices both on the nose and on the palate.

Region Burgundy

Burgundy is renowned for producing some of the most elegant and sought after wines of the world. Spread over 230km with 50,000 ha of vineyards and over 110 different appellations, the region resembles a veritable patchwork quilt of vineyards. The principal grape varieties of the region are Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Gamay. Burgundy’s climate is northern continental, ranging from cool marginal conditions in Chablis in the north to the warm climate of Beaujolais on its southern boundary. The classic “Burgundy” wines come from the central part of the region known as the Côte d’Or. Burgundy has a hierarchical classification system based on the quality of the vineyard site. The best vineyards are “Grand Cru” and are usually located on the slopes with the most favourable aspect and soils. Premier Cru (1er Cru), Village and generic Bourgogne wines follow in descending order. There are 30 Grand Cru vineyards mostly located in the Côte d’Or and over 560 Premier Cru sites.
