Not giving much away on the nose just a hint of tangy, stony citrus. Real citrus drive on the palate to a long finish. Linear and precise and persistent.

This top division 12 hectare property, based in the heart of Meursault, is run by the young and talented Charles Ballot. The Ballot & Millot families began acquiring vineyards in Meursault in the mid 17th century. When Charles's parents married, they brought together some exceptional holdings, including extremely well situated parcels of the two finest premier crus, Perrières and Genevrières.
The ages of the vines range from 30 years for Les Criots to 70 years for the Genevrières. An extremely stringent form of viticulture is practiced in the vineyards, with no herbicides and minimal use of other treatments. In fact everything is now organic but he will not become certified as such. All the wines are barrel fermented, with around 25% new oak for the 1er Crus and 10% for the village wines.
Their fabulous Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru Morgeot comprises nearly a hectare of 50 year old vines in Tête du Clos - the highest part of Les Morgeots under La Romanée, on very rocky limestone. Charles never uses bâtonnage. His Meursaults are chiselled, fine, pure and minerally, and rather 'Puligny' in style.
