Jean-Francois Mestre has revitalised Domaine Michelot as one of the finest in Meursault. His winemaking is traditional, whereby the wines complete their fermentations in oak casks and then bottled one year after harvest. With extended lees contact and regular battonage, the wines gain texture and further flavour dimension. With low yields to guarantee good concentration their style is one of elegance and restraint but with great depth.
