In Mercurey, a village nestled in Burgundy on the famous Côte Chalonnaise, the Michel Julliot Estate, which has existed for four generations, cultivates 30 hectares of vines producing a large selection of the best “climats” and expositions that Mercurey has to offer (South & South-East) as well as several Côte de Beaune Crus. Michel's grandfather (Laurent's great-grandfather) was even responsible for determining some of the boundaries of Mercurey. As Michel and son, Laurent Juillot’s wines are referenced by a great number of Michelin starred restaurants and guaranteed by the many prizes and medals they have been awarded, the Estate’s production singularly demonstrates a philosophy of quality upheld by a family of wine makers who not only admire, but also respect their terroir.
