Domaine Theulot Juillot Mercurey 1er Cru ‘La Cailloute’

This Monopole wine is named after the little hunting lodge near this parcel of 2.5 hectares. Although a classic Burgundian, its terroir gives it an exotic hint. The pure dark red fruit, delicate fine tannins and lovely freshness make this wine a stand out must-have.

This incredible southeast facing terroir is from the soil of limestone of oolite from the Jurassic period with a distinctive red tint — no use of herbicides and chemicals. 

The grapes are hand-harvested, 100% destemmed with fermentation in concrete tanks, some punch down and pump over, then matured in oak barrels for 15 months.

Emile Juillot

The Juillots are an old Burgundian family, some of whom have been vignerons since the 15th century. This particular domaine dates back to around 1900 and is presently run by Emile’s granddaughter, Nathalie and her husband, Jean-Claude Theulot. Since Nathalie and Jean-Claude took over the running of the estate, they have instituted many quality-improving techniques.

 

Debudding and green harvest reduce the quantity but improve the quality of the harvest (something a large industrial winemaker would never dream of doing). Meticulous attention to detail during the harvest and vinification process ensure the aromatic qualities of the grapes are preserved. They also cut down the use of herbicides and pesticides and practice 'culture raisonée' (a regulated farming practice that takes into account environmental protection, safety and animal well-being).

 

At Domaine Emile Juillot there are many different plots, all of which are vinified separately. It's amazing to taste six different wines, all Pinot Noir or Chardonnay, all made by the same winemakers, from within a stone's throw from each other, and all with marked differences in aroma, texture and taste. This is yet more proof of what is lost in the wines from the cave cooperative or the industrial scale producers, who are looking for the same generic result for their wines, regardless of the subtle differences in their origins.

Domaine Theulot Juillot

In the heart of Cote Chalonnaise, Mercurey is one of the best known vineyard apelations of Burgundy. On white calciferous, or red clay soil, the vines gather the best of these conditions. It is this delicate and warm combination that gives birth to two famous wines.
