2016 Meursault 1er Cru Perrières, Domaine Ballot-Millot

The site of a former quarry, the soil in Perrières is very stony, and the wine has a pronounced mineral, even saline, quality. Very, very impressive: there’s so much verve and vivacity. Long and intense, with lovely freshness and elegance and purity to the fruit.

2016 Meursault 1er Cru Perrières, Domaine Ballot-Millot
Domaine Ballot-Millot

Run by talented young winemaker Charles since 2000, on the estate created by the union of his grandparents, this is a domaine bang on form, one you overlook at your peril. Charles is the 17th generation of the family to live and work in Burgundy, but he doesn’t let this history hold his winemaking back. Willing to push the boundaries, he produces wines that have everything in perfect relief: concentration, minerality, acidity and complexity.
