Tradition and respect for nature are the watchwords at Domaine Bernard Millot, whose vineyards in Burgundy’s prestigious Côte d’Or villages Puligny-Montrachet and Meursault have belonged to the family since 1700. Today this small estate is owned and run by Bernard Millot with wife Sylvie and son Emilien. The Millot family believe passionately in following ‘sustainable’ viticultural methods that encourage long-term biodiversity in the vineyard, minimising the need for potentially harmful chemicals. All grapes in the 21 acres of vineyards are picked by hand, and age-old winemaking techniques see the wines mature in oak barrels for twelve months in the even temperatures and low light of the tiny, vaulted cellars beneath the Millot family home in Meursault. Textbook classics in the traditional mould, Domaine Millot’s superlative, award-winning wines are exclusive to Corney & Barrow in the UK.
