The 23 hectare Domaine Borgeot is situated in the village of Remigny in the Côte de Beaune. It was created in 1903, and is now run by fourth generation brothers Laurent & 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. The Domaine practices 'la lutte raisonnée' which is why you are more likely to find Laurent walking in his vines or on his small tractor. The wines are fermented in a combination of temperature controlled stainless steel vats and oak barrels to give complexity but also retain the primary fruity aromas. The Puligny-Montrachet Villages ‘Les Grands Champs’ and the Chassagne-Montrachet Vieilles Vignes are both aged for 11 months in one to five year old French oak barrels, of which 25% are new. The Chassagne-Montrachet Premier Cru 'Clos St Jean' Blanc is also aged for 11 months in barrel, with 30% new oak. All of the wines are perfectly balanced and the oak is wonderfully integrated.
