Domaine Michel Juillot is a family run winery. It is on the main street in the village of Mercurey in Côte Chalonnaise in southern Burgundy. The estate is today run by Laurent Juillot, the current generation winemaker, although his father, Michel, is always close by. They have in total 33 hectares of vineyards, most of it in the Mercurey appellation but some in other parts of Burgundy.
The Domaine Michel Juillot property makes a whole range of wines, from Bourgogne Blanc and Rouge (and even some rosé), over Mercurey and also a little Côte de Beaune (from Aloxe Corton, including both a red and white grand cru). The white wines are made from chardonnay grapes and the reds mainly from pinot noir.
The winery is located a short walk away from the main building, on the edge of the Mercurey village, with its back to the vineyards. The vinification is traditional. Grapes are harvested by machine or by hand, are brought in to the winery and pressed (for the whites). Fermentation is steel tanks. Some wines are aged in oak barrels.
Domaine Michel Juillot produces each year around 180,000 bottles of Burgundy wine. The total production is sold in bottle.
