Domain Bernard Millot Meursault Premier Cru 2016 75cl 13% ABV
For four generations, the Millot family of winemakers has been operating an area of 8 ha, with various parcels in the communes of Meursault, Puligny Montrachet and Beaune. Today, Emilien works with the help of his parents, Bernard and Sylvie. The Meursault Alexie is comprised of about equal portions for the lieux-dits En Luraule touching 1er Cru Poruzots on one side and Les Crotots adjoining Poruzot on another side. Puligny Corvées adjoins Meursault 1re Cru Les Charmes. Average age of all their vines is 40-50 years.
Quite exotic, with apricot fruit, hay and dried herb notes. Good attack, leading to a massive and concentrated palate of depth and power. The oak is a bit strident now, but it will integrate with more time.
