Introducing Domaine Bernard Millot. Two 2016 Premier Crus from Meursault at nice prices

Two 1er Cru Meursault from 2016 at very reasonable prices
 
One of my discoveries during last month's trip to Burgundy was Domaine Bernard Millot. Located in Meursault the domaine has just 8 hectares of vines including a lovely selection of Meursault whites.
 
The domaine typically produces three Premier Crus whites but in 2016, due to the frost, production was way down and only two 1er Cru Meursault were produced. The house style at Domaine Millot is fine and elegant. The wines are intense, balanced and very pure. They avoid the richness and fat of lesser domaines. When I have time I will write more about the domaine's other wines as there is more to enjoy here.
As a new domaine in our portfolio the wines are available at a  25% Pre Arrival Discount. Be quick!

Special buying condition: There is no limit on the amount of the first Meursault you may purchase. However, for each bottle of Perrieres you must purchase a bottle of the 1er Cru blend. First-in, first-served. Quantities available are very small.
Domaine Bernard Millot Meursault 1er Cru 2016
Normal Price $179.95
Pre Arrival Price $134.95

Millot 1er Cru 2016 Label Darren Harris: This is a blend of the 1er Crus La Goutte d'Or with a little Les Cras (necessary due to the tiny production in 2016). Very pale colour. Aromatic nose of white fruits, citrus, flowers and minerals. Great attack on the palate with very fine acidity - quite Puligny like. Very lively in the mouth with concentrated flavours and serious length. Delightfully balanced - a classic Meursault of style and restrained power.

Millot Perrieres 2016 Label Darren Harris: I have to admit I didn't taste this as the domaine had sold out. But after some serious arm twisting the domaine found a few cases for me. We all know that Meursault 1er Cru Perrieres is one of the great 1er Crus and a serious contender for Grand Cru status. Based on the consistent quality of all of the whites I tasted at this domaine I can't imagine it being anything less than superb.

2016 White Burgundy Header
 
2016 White Burgundy
2006 is a lovely vintage for both reds and whites. The alcohol levels are moderate and both colours display fresh fruit that speaks of its terroir.

Production was very low but none-the-less we still have over 100 whites to choose from. The first of these have arrived with more to come in the second half of the year.
