Domaine Jean-Marc Millot
Curiously, this family domaine is based in Nuits-St-Georges but has no Nuits! Jean-Marc’s dynamic and highly motivated daughter, Alix, is now running things having assumed control in 2014. She is very much part of the generation of twenty and thirty-somethings who have set Burgundy alight in recent years with their ambition, insight, energy and sheer talent. Confidence with no hint of arrogance seems to be one of the key ingredients in the make up of these stars of the future, and Alix has it in spades, being very focused and clear about what she is trying to achieve and how she should do it. The domaine is run organically, although not certified, and is blessed with various parcels of old vines. New oak is sensibly handled varying from around 20% to 35% depending upon the Cru and the volumes made, and extraction is light and delicate, Alix generally preferring pumping over (remontage) to pumping down (pigeage). Stylistically the wines are cool with silky tannins and precise detailed flavours and whilst she has some grand appellations in her locker her entry level wines really show off her innate skills as a vigneronne.
