Gachot-Monot NSG “Aux Crots” (750ml)
Nuits Saint Georges
The wines of Gachot-Monot represent excellent value in Burgundian wines. They offer an outstanding price-to-quality ratio. This fifth-generation vigneron and his Danish wife, Lise, farm twelve hectares in the village of Corgoloin, in between Nuits-Saint-Georges and Beaune. They first came to Kermit’s attention via the master of La Tâche himself, Aubert de Villaine and another great Burgundian producer, Bertrand Chevillon. Damien was first saluted by the Hospices de Beaune as a young talent to be watched. Kermit Lynch has been importing his wines since the 2000 vintage.
Vines are sustainably farmed and densely planted, pruning, de-budding, and green harvests limit the yields. All grapes are harvested by hand and 100% destemmed before fermentation in cement tank for anywhere between 10-15 days. The wine ages in barrel (20-30% of which are new) for up to 18 months before bottling.
Pinot Noir from 45 year old vines growing on clay limestone.
