Michel CAILLOT, Meursault


Caillot’s wines age particularly well thanks to an unusually long ‘élevage’ at low temperatures, the first year in cask and the second in tank.  The house style is for full flavoured wines with zesty fruit, lightly nuanced by oak, with a sustained and mineral finish.  The straight village Meursault is one of the best value on the market.  Also of note is the expressively flinty Santenay Blanc grown on the stony limestone soils of the appellation, and his single vineyard Bourgogne Blanc ‘Les Herbeux’, a tiny plot opposite the lofty Meursault ‘Barre’ vineyard... ie:  a Meursault in all but name.
 
He also makes some very palatable and affordable reds across three appellations.
