Located in Meursault. A beautiful family domain where generations have succeeded each other since the 17th century. Today, Charles Ballot is at the helm. The still young Charles Ballot took over the domaine in 2000 from his father Philippe. His estate consists of about 30 hectares. Mainly Chardonnay from the best terroirs from Meursault and Chassagne Montrachtet, but also Pinot Noir from Pommard, Volnay and Chassagne. Charles Ballot is now one of the absolute top in his region. Tradition and innovation are the keywords here. Charles respects 'terroir', prunes for lower yields and cherishes his old canes. He also invests in modern techniques and materials to ensure the very best quality. It works according to traditional culture such as full fermentation on wood and low yields. In the wine cellar he opts for a soft, slow pressing and a slow vinification. All his wines are fully fermented and aged in oak for 12 months. For the most part he uses old barrels of 1 or 2 years. The road to full organic cultivation has now been started.

The Ballot-Millot Bourgogne Chardonnay is a beautiful Burgundy with the signature of a Meursault! From plots in Meursault (located just next to Meursault 1er cru Charmes) from a calcareous soil. Very rich, creamy full Chardonnay with hints of almond and gingerbread. This wine was aged a little bit, which makes it shine in terms of minerality and acidity. Very pure wine made with a clear Ballot signature.
