Description

Ballot Millot’s roots in Burgundy are seriously deep: they began amassing vineyards back in the 17th century. The Domaine has been one to watch ever since Charles Ballot took over in 2001. When Ballot took over, he began reducing yields, improving farming practices, and updating equipment. The level of quality rose dramatically.

Stylistically, Ballot Millot falls between the reductive style of Coche and Roulot and the voluptuous, oily style of old-school Meursault producers. Ballot’s wines have undeniable energy and detail, without sacrificing richness.

"Les Criots" and "Les Crotots" are on very rich soil and produce generous, slightly buttery, and fat wines.

Review

Pungent aromas of smoky mineral reduction, citrus peel, and a suggestion of green apple. The finer and even better-delineated flavours are not quite as concentrated, but they are more saline in character on the lingering finish. This too needs more overall depth though in this case, it does not seem quite as certain to develop.
