2021 Domaine Ballot-Millot Bourgogne Chardonnay
Located in Meursault. A beautiful family estate where generations have succeeded each other since the 17th century. Today, Charles Ballot is at the helm. The young Charles Ballot took over the domaine from his father Philippe in 2000. His estate consists of approximately 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 key words here. Charles respects 'terroir', prunes for lower yields and cherishes his old vines. He also invests in modern techniques and materials to ensure the very best quality. He works according to traditional culture such as complete fermentation in wood and low yields. In the wine cellar he opts for a soft, slow pressing and a slow vinification. All his wines undergo complete fermentation and mature in oak for 12 months. For the most part he uses old barrels of 1 or 2 years. The road to fully organic cultivation has now been started.
The Ballot-Millot Bourgogne Chardonnay is a beautiful Burgundy with the signature of a Meursault! Originating from plots in Meursault (located just next to Meursault 1er cru Charmes) from a calcareous soil. Very rich, creamy full Chardonnay with notes of almond and gingerbread. This wine was given a little bit of barrel age, which makes it shine in terms of minerality and acidity. Very pure wine made with a clear Ballot signature.
