Domaine Borgeot

Domaine Borgeot is situated in the village of Rémigny in the Côte de...

Beaune. It was created in 1903 and is now run by fourth generation brothers Laurent and Pascal Borgeot. Their 23 hectares are in the villages of Bouzeron, Santenay, Chassagne-Montrachet and Puligny-Montrachet. The magic of Domaine Borgeot lies in the two people who make these charming wines. Pascal is calm, measured and brings an element of control over Laurent, who cannot sit still for one minute. As the saying goes in Burgundy, if you look at the person behind the wines, you will get an idea of the style of wine in your glass. Domaine Borgeot wines exhibit the calm restraint of Pascal balanced with the exuberance and liveliness of Laurent.

Vineyards

All fruit is sourced from vineyards within the family Domaine, located in the village of Rémigny in the Côte d'Or. In the vineyard, brothers Pascal and Laurent adopt an approach of 'lutte raisonnée', meaning that they will do everything in their power to adhere to the principles of organic farming and avoid the use of pesticides.

Vintage Information

In 2017, Burgundy enjoyed a return to average yields, although some areas were impacted by spring frosts which slightly reduced yields. The vines’ growth cycle benefited from an early budburst at the beginning of April, which was followed by a very warm summer interspersed with a few hot spells as well as more mixed conditions. Ripening progressed at a good pace with the first grapes being harvested across the region two weeks earlier than average.

Vinification

Grapes were hand-harvested and sorted to ensure that only the finest fruit made it into the final wine. Throughout the vinification process, the brothers employed a combination of both traditional Burgundian techniques and modern winemaking practices with an emphasis on temperature control. The grapes were destemmed and chilled before fermentation in open vats for 18 days with daily pumping over. Post fermentation the wine was aged for 11 months in a mix of oak barrel (25% new, 25% used) and stainless steel tanks.

Tasting Notes

An elegant wine, with pretty floral aromas complemented by tropical fruit notes of pineapple and hints of tangerine. This wine is fresh, with a mouthwatering acidity and lovely minerality on the finish.
