A little more expressive than the Narvaux on the nose. A touch smoky but just nicely so. Rich, ripe and concentrated, as if it had had some water removed… Powerfully impressive for those who like richness and depth rather than delicacy. Very persistent.

Family run since 17th C. the domain of Ballot-Millot is situated in Meursault and aims to offer the soft and fruity wines that the best of Meursault and Chassagne Montrachet represent as well as a richness and delicacy reminiscent of Pommard and Beaune. Since 2000, Charles Ballot took up the reigns as the 15th generation taking over from his father and is keen to return the domain to its traditional methods. For 10 years now, the use of herbicides is completely banned and other treatments are done sustainably. Ultimately, the estate is aiming to be totally bio-dynamic. After 12 months vinification and once the malo-lactic fermentation is finished, the white wine spends a further 6 months to settle but keep its freshness. Wines are then filtered and bottled. Red wines receive 5 days cold maceration before the fermentation starts. When complete the wines spend 18 months in barrel, when 100% of the liquid goes through malo-lactic fermentation.
