Dom Michelot Bourgogne Blanc 2015 Product #32584 (In Stock)
Dom Michelot Bourgogne Blanc 2015 Dom Michelot Bourgogne Blanc 2015

Jean-François Mestre and his son, Nicolas, make their Bourgogne Blanc with all the care of a fine Meursault - which it nearly is! The grapes grow in a half-dozen small plots within the commune of Meursault tucked between the village and the RN 74 road running north to Beaune and south to Puligny-Montrachet. Just as in their 1er Cru Meursault vineyards, farming is organic (in conversion to biodynamic), with a mixture of grassy cover crops (to force the vines to compete for moisture and nutrients) and plowed rows (putting that cover crop back into the soil). Harvest is by hand, sorting careful, and pressing light into French oak (all used).
 
The wine is a marvel, somehow combining the richness of vintage 2015 with sizzling, snappy, almost Chablis-like zest and energy. A bit tight on the nose, with subtle aromas of lemon, apricot, and green pineapple fruit with accents of oyster shell and mint. On the palate, you'll feel the vintage's characteristic richness but taste taut zesty, Meursault flavors of lemon curd, hazelnut, sea shell, spice and mint. Finishes pure, firm, and long with lemon, mint and toasted nut flavors lingering nicely. A magnificent seafood wine now and poised to improve and gain richness over the next few years.

Dom Michelot Meursault Narvaux 2014 Product #31572 (In Stock)
Dom Michelot Meursault Narvaux 2014 Dom Michelot Meursault Narvaux 2014

Meursault's Lieu-Dit vineyards are kind of a halfway step from "village" to 1er Cru status, and Narvaux is one of the best.  Perched  on rocky soils high on the hill above 1er Cru Les Genevrieres, Narvaux gives classic Meursualt richness without heaviness and good energy with no hard edges.  Michelot's is about as fine as Narvaux gets.

“Pale yellow. Peach, orange, spicy oak and grilled almond on the nose. A distinct step up in energy and lift from the Clos Saint-Félix, showing much more mineral spine to its lightly saline flavors of citrus fruits, hazelnut and spices. Very Meursault but in a firm style, with the backbone to evolve gracefully. Finishes with sneaky orange zest persistence.”  Vinous (Tanzer) 90 points

“High-pitched, offering toasted sweet spice, lime blossom, citronella, mineral and nut oil aromas and flavors. Well-defined, intense and taut, with a stingy finish for now, but the potential is there."Wine Spectator 91 points

Dom Michelot Meursault Narvaux 2015 Product #32585 (In Stock)
Dom Michelot Meursault Narvaux 2015 Dom Michelot Meursault Narvaux 2015

Tasting with Nicolas Mestre at the Domaine in March, we were impressed with the straight village-level Meursault. Wine Spectator was, too, awarding it a fine 90 point rating. But one taste of the 2015 Les Narvaux (which Wine Spectator didn't try), and we immediately knew it was more than worth the few extra dollars!
 
Les Narvaux is the best of Meursault's "lieu-dit" vineyards, kind of a halfway step from "village" to 1er Cru. Perched on rocky soils high on the hill above 1er Cru Les Genevrieres, Narvaux gives classic Meursault richness without heaviness and good energy with no hard edges. Michelot's is about as fine as Narvaux gets. In 2015, it's opulent and rich but retains the kind of tight focus and minerality that makes white Burgundy so exciting. Subtle lemon, orchard, hazelnut and fresh butter scents invite you in. Then BIG flavors of stone fruit, citrus, toasted nut and tangy butter fill your mouth, staying tangy and lithe for all the depth and richness. Meursault's classic minerality wells up nicely on the butter, hazelnut and mint-laced finish that seems to never end. A delicious white Burgundy that perfectly balances the richness of the year with the energy, cut and minerality that make white Burgundy...well, Burgundy!

Dom Michelot Meursault 1er Cru Les Charmes 2015 Product #32586 (In Stock)
Dom Michelot Meursault 1er Cru Les Charmes 2015 Dom Michelot Meursault 1er Cru Les Charmes 2015

Michelot's slice of the great 1er Cru Charmes features 50-60 year-old vines right in the middle of the vineyard. A nicely warm site and the shallow limestone and clay soils over broken limestone rock tends to push Charmes towards a ripe, round, texture. Michelot's careful tending of these vines and light hand in winemaking makes their Charmes more intense, focused, and tight than most, with fantastic drive and energy to complement the ripe fruit. A short decant is all this needs to shine today, but it will delivering delicious delight far beyond Wine Spectator's 2025 drink-by date!

“This is intense, offering lime blossom, apple, citronella and mineral aromas and flavors. Racy, with terrific harmony and a long aftertaste. Drink now through 2025. 375 cases made.”Wine Spectator 93 points

Dom Michelot Meursault 1er Cru Les Perrieres 2014 Product #31573 (In Stock)
Dom Michelot Meursault 1er Cru Les Perrieres 2014 Dom Michelot Meursault 1er Cru Les Perrieres 2014

This blends fruit from two small plots of Merusault's greatest vineyard.  One from just to the south of Clos des Perrieres is loaded with limestone and gives richness and depth.  The other from the upper slope (looking down into the Roman quarry that gives the vineyard it's name) grows in thin soils over hard rock, giving vibrancy, energy and minerality.

Even in the forward 2014 vintage, this is quite young but enormously concentrated, complex and promising with huge richness and finishing length.  Give it an hour of air right now with lobster or scallops or let it develop for a while – if you can wait!

“Pure but reticent perfume of citrus fruits, pineapple, crushed rock and flowers. Sappy, densely packed and seamless, offering lovely inner-mouth floral lift to its pineapple and crushed stone flavors. More refined than the previous premier crus here and much longer and smoother on the rising finish. In an adamantly dry, mineral-driven style, but there's already a lot going on here. This wine softened nicely with air, showing attractive sweetness of fruit without losing any of its energy or back-end lift.  Drink 2019-2027”  Vinous (Tanzer) 92 points

“A floral-, apple- and stone-flavored white, boasting a tightly wound structure and a tightfisted finish. Hints of spice emerge, but overall, this needs time to strut its stuff. Best from 2019 through 2027. 2,100 cases made.”Wine Spectator 92 points
