DOMAINE THEULOT JUILLOT

La Cailloute 1er Cru vineyard sits at an altitude of around 340 meters in altitude, facing south.  This parcel, which forms an ensemble with a forest and a small hunting lodge, is an emblematic place within the Mercurey appellation.  The Chardonnay grows in the shelter of the south-facing hills, protected from the cold winds from the north, benefiting from optimum sunshine.    Planted in 1979.
