Domaine Michel Juillot is one of the leading estates in Mercurey. Laurent Juillot is the fourth generation to run the domaine and he has inherited his father Michel’s attention to detail and focus on quality. The domaine produces a varied range of wines, from village Bourgogne up to the Grand Crus of Corton Perrières and Corton-Charlemagne. Laurent puts just as much effort into the vineyard management and winemaking for his entry level wines as he does for his Grand Crus; this is reflected in the quality across all price levels. All of his wines show typicity of terroir, elegance and class.
From very old vines planted between 1964 -1982. This wine conserves its beautiful strong ruby red colour for a long time. The hue is due to the concentration of elements in the grapes at the time of harvesting. It is also proof of its Grand Cru status. At its peak, in the nose and on the palate, the wine develops a smell of jams, cooked fruit, fruit jellies and wild berries that are completed by notes of forest floor, moss and game. This perfectly balanced wine ends on a spicy, mineral note followed by that of licorice. As one of the four aces of the Corton Red wine selection, this wine should be kept at least five years before being opened.
