Winemaker Notes

Gold-tinged and extremely healthy Chardonnay grapes produced concentrated, powerful wines. Their rich aromas and flavors captivate the senses, with overtones of spice, preserved citrus, toast, ripe fruit, white flowers, and acacia honey. A beautiful freshness on the aftertaste reflects fine acidity. The wine is altogether full-bodied and sumptuous on the palate, with a strong, dynamic presence and a spark of brilliance.

RP 96
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
As is often the case, the Batard is relatively closed on the nose but the mineralite is certainly here with just a faint hint of toffee apple. The palate is brilliant: wonderful delineation, ample fresh apricot and white peach fruit, vibrant and enthralling on the finish. Gorgeous!
BH 95
Interestingly, here the nose quite resembles that of the Caillerets save for having less obvious minerality and more peach and pear influences. There is superb richness to the big-bodied, intense and powerful flavors that possess an overt muscularity though no heaviness because while this is a full-sized Batard, it is also focused, pure and harmonious. This should also age well and repay up to a decade of cellar time though it should drink well before that. 92-95

Jean-Noel Gagnard, France
Viticulture and winemaking have been part and parcel of civilisation for many centuries.Wine is not only an age-old reflection of culture, life style, and conviviality, but also the noblest of drinks and the product which most links us to its terroir (or geographical origin) and the people who make it. Chassagne-Montrachet is a very privileged appellation where winegrowers are duty-bound to do their very best. The Domaine Jean-Noel Gagnard clearly shares this search for excellence. This quest is complicated by the fact that there is obviously no one single way of looking at things. In any event, we will only ever be humble interpreters of our terroir's multiple facets. The wineries natural preference and basic philosophy is to make wines of finesse and elegance. Their expertise, experience and passion are all devoted to these two words. Last but not least, let us not forget that the pleasure of wine lies in tasting it rather than knowing about it!

Cote de Beaune Wine

Cote d'Or, Burgundy

View all products

A classic source of exceptional Chardonnay as well as Pinot Noir, the Côte de Beaune makes up the southern half of the Côte d’Or. Its principal wine-producing villages are Pernand-Vergelesses, Aloxe-Corton, Beaune, Pommard, Volnay, Meursault, Puligny-Montrachet and Chassagne-Montrachet.

The area is named for its own important town of Beaune, which is essentially the center of the Burgundy wine business and where many negociants center their work. Hospices de Beaune, the annual wine auction, is based here as well.

One of the most popular and versatile white wine grapes, Chardonnay offers a wide range of flavors and styles depending on where it is grown and how it is made. While it tends to flourish in most environments, Chardonnay from its Burgundian homeland produces some of the most remarkable and longest lived examples. California produces both oaky, buttery styles and leaner, European-inspired wines. Somm Secret—The Burgundian subregion of Chablis, while typically using older oak barrels, produces a bright style similar to the unoaked style. Anyone who doesn't like oaky Chardonnay would likely enjoy Chablis.
