In Mercurey, a village nestled in Burgundy on the famous Côte Chalonnaise, Domaine Michel Juillot Estate farms 30 hectares of vines producing a large selection of the best “climats”. Today Laurent Juillot, fourth generation, is in charge of the estate. His wines are referenced by a great number of Michelin starred restaurants and guaranteed by the many prizes and medals they have been awarded, the Estate’s production singularly demonstrates a philosophy of quality upheld by a family of wine makers who not only admire, but also respect their terroir.
The Domaine is run along the principles of lutte raisonnée, with an organic approach. Harvest is done exclusively by hand, use of indigenous yeast, minimum intervention in winemaking.
‘‘This is, and justly so, one of the most respected Côte Chalonnaise domaines’’ – Clive Coates –
