Domaine Borgeot is situated in the village of Rémigny in the Côte de Beaune. Created in 1903, it is now run by the fourth generation of the Borgeot family: brothers Laurent and Pascal. Their 23 hectares of sustainably-farmed vineyards are in the villages of Bouzeron, Santenay, Chassagne-Montrachet and Puligny-Montrachet. The magic of Domaine Borgeot lies in the two people making these charming wines. 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 and measured restraint of Pascal, balanced with the exuberance and liveliness of Laurent.
The fruit for the Chassagne-Montrachet ‘Vieilles Vignes’ comes from vines aged 60 years old on average, giving beautifully concentrated and well-defined flavours in the wine.
The wines are fermented in a combination of temperature-controlled, stainless steel vats and oak barrels to give complexity while retaining the primary fruit aromas.
The Vieilles Vignes has huge complexity on the nose, with citrus, herbs and a dusty mineral note. On the palate, good acidity balances the richness of the body, and there is a touch of zest on the long and smooth finish.
