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 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 Meursault comes from five different plots, planted on clay and limestone soils with vines with an average age of 35 years. The entire bunches are fermented unbruised, partly in new oak barrels. Further maturing takes place in stainless steel so that the influence of the wood is not too dominant and to preserve freshness, fruit and the beautiful acids and minerality, so do not expect a fat, buttery Meursault here, but Elegance with a capital E. The wine has beautiful fruit of pear, green apple and peach, with a light hint of reduction, medium to full, nicely concentrated and dense, with well-structured extract and grip
