Product information


From a very stony vineyard (the Chaillots are the 'Cailloux' of the Rhône; large pebbles) with good natural drainage – the fruit produced here leans very much towards Nuits-St-Georges in style, with dark fruit and gentle grip. The ripe nature of 2014 shows through on the nose, back fruits, cherry, subtle hints of oak and spice, very pure.  Lovely mouthfeel, silky, ripe soft fruits, cherry, fine grained tannins – good acidity giving lift and balance.  This is a terrific effort, the balanced richness of the vintage and complexity of the terroir shine through.

Dating back to 1890, Damien and Danish wife Liselotte farm about 12 hectares from Corgoloin on the famous road from Nuits St. Georges to Beaune, probably most famous for the large Domaine d'Ardhuy visible on the drive past. It is interesting to note that Corgoloin and Comblanchien could have joined the Nuits-St-Georges appellation if the wine growers of had not refused it (oops!).

The Gachots practise minimal interventionist lutte raisonnée, vines are planted at a density of 10,000 vines per hectare, with de-budding and green harvesting to reduce yields. In the new cellars (completed in 2003) all grapes are de-stemmed and the wines are vinified traditionally and aged in futs (max. 30% new) for up to 18 months, depending on the wine. The style is very traditional – always looking for expression to reflect the soil and site - yet very modern in his outlook and does not confuse ‘terroir’ with ‘rustic’; his wines are supple and approachable, and amazing value.
