When Raphael Coche - of the legendary Domaine Coche Dury - admits that he doesn’t understand why its ‘not as well-known as us’, clearly Domaine Michelot are doing something very right in the heart of Meursault. Allen Meadows, who last visited the sixth generation domaine in 2011, described the top wines as outstanding, while the hard to impress Stephen Tanzer rated the 2017s very highly. We concur, wholeheartedly. Its 2015s were a revelation, its 2016s uncommonly good; its 2017 are even better. Unfined and unfiltered, with the new oak dialled right down, they’re fantastic examples of a fresh-is-best approach: extremely fine, pure, and mineral-driven in style. Dive in and be ahead of the curve with Domaine Michelot. What’s good for those insightful chaps at Coche-Dury is most certainly good for us.
