Domaine Gachot-Monot Saint Aubin 2017



Yellow-gold in appearance with powerful aromas of nectarine, almond, white flowers and orange blossom, the palate is rich and full, packed with lush tropical fruits and layered with hints of butterscotch, toasted nuts and honey.

A fine oaked Chardonnay from the southern Côte-de-Beaune situated on the heights between Puligny and Chassagne. This is barrel matured for 6-8 months, initially on release quite oaky but mellowing over time and peaking 5-7 years after bottling.

  • Rich, complex, opulent

Producer: Domaine Gachot-Monot

Five successive generations have been at the head of this family run estate situated in Corgoloin on the border of Côte de Nuits and Côte de Beaune. The recent history is highlighted by two women who contributed to the domaine’s longevity: Marguerite Monot, who ran the vineyard alone from 1950 to 1980, and her only daughter Marie Therese, who, with the help of her husband Jean Pierre Gachot, renovated, replanted and gave their name to the Domaine. Marie Therese's son Damien now runs Domaine Gachot-Monot with his Danish wife, Liselotte.

The vineyard today covers about 18 hectares mainly planted with Pinot Noir and is entirely cultivated according to a philosophy of respect for the soil and the vine, with vinification following Burgundian traditions to reveal and reflect the subtleties of the soils. The wines sell out every vintage, carefully bottled at the estate's own winery after 14 to 16 months maturing in oak barrels and released on allocation around 6 months later.
