Domaine Ballot-Millot

The Brad Pitt of Meursault is now recognised as one of the very finest producers in Meursault, crafting refined Meursaults with that lovely mix of struck match, minerals and vivacity. The last few vintages have seen the quality reach new levels and his top wines rival pretty much anything else being made in the village. If you haven’t indulged yet we suggest you hesitate no longer. In recent Burgfest blind tastings he has beaten the likes of Roulot and Lafon in flights of Les Perrières. His winemaking style is fairly reductive and he bottles quite late, preferring to give the wines plenty of time to marry in stainless steel following a period of time in barrel. New oak is well used and never dominates. His top village wine is the Narvaux, which sits just above 1er Cru Genevrières on the rocky outcrop, and displays enticing minerality and drive. Charmes is seductive and appealing, Genevrières itself is a fantastic mix of richness and stoniness, whilst the Perrières just has another level. These are excellent wines that age well.
