• In vintage 2010: Free SO2 target at bottling is 35 ppm; also uses approximately 800 mg of CO2 (which is much higher than most producers – see Le Moine for another example)
  • In vintage 2017: (per William Kelley of the Wine Advocate) Ballot Millot now has a target of 40 ppm of free SO2


  • Meursault Genevrieres (Dec 2015) not oxidized (R DeAngelo)
  • Meursault–Genèvrières (Aug. 2018 – Jul. 2019): 3 btls not oxidized. Lovely wine with a gorgeous nose & an exotic but not over–the–top palate of tropical fruits & citrus zest. From a lot of 3 purchased at retail in Hong Kong circa 2011. [Rayner Cheung]
  • Meursault–Perrières (Oct. 2018 – Oct. 2019): 3 btls not oxidized. Another lovely wine, here with a classic Perrières nose of smokey flintiness & orchard fruits on the palate beautifully balanced by minerality. From a lot of 3 purchased at retail in Hong Kong circa 2011. [Rayner Cheung]
  • Meursault–Perrières (Jan. 2020 – May 2020): 1 btl oxidized + 2 btls not oxidized. The good btls had a subtly delicate bouquet of white flowers & peach, & tasted quite young & minerally. From 3 btls purchased at retail in Hong Kong in Sep. 2014. [Rayner Cheung]
  • Meursault–Perrières (Jun. 2020 – ): 1 btl not oxidized. Pale yellow gold color. Reticient nose only showing hints of citrus & popcorn. Youthfully lean on the palate. Best decanted. From 3 btls purchased at retail in Hong Kong in Jun. 2015. [Rayner Cheung]
