  • An elegant and suave Pinot Noir, showing delicious ripe, red fruit aromas alongside a touch of spice and toasty notes. Smooth and approachable, with supple tannins enveloping the red, brambly fruits through to a long and refined finish. 2019 has been cited as an outstanding vintage and one of the best in recent years. The dry, warm conditions produced low yields of impeccably balanced, concentrated wines with refined freshness and remarkable purity. A mild winter followed a chilly spring, with frosts affecting some areas. Cooler temperatures in June resulted in uneven flowering and some millerandage in some vineyards. However, temperatures soared in July and August with vines under hydric stress, resulting in superb concentration and complexity of flavours
The grapes come from several terroirs in the Monthelie appellation, from old vines (vieilles vignes) with an average age of 45 years. The vines are sustainably cultivated to respect the equilibrium of the environment, with the objective of limiting treatments to what is strictly necessary to obtain a harvest in the best possible condition. Careful pruning ensures foliage is left from a height of one metre, so the grapes have sufficient leaves to synthesise the natural sugars. This labour intensive pruning also encourages aeration of the bunches and optimal sunlight exposure. 90% of the work is done by hand, and only by professionals using the purest Burgundian traditions, to ensure a modest yield of high quality, ripe fruit. Manually harvested at optimum maturity.

Domaine Florent Garaudet is a small, family-run estate located in the village of Monthelie, between Volnay and Meursault in the heart of Burgundy’s Cote de Beaune. Approximately 60% of the three-hectare estate is planted with Pinot Noir in vineyards surrounding Monthelie, while Chardonnay accounts for 40% covering the appellations of Meursault and Puligny-Montrachet. Florent Garaudet is the fifth generation to cultivate a part of the family domain. He blends a highly traditional approach with a passionate vision for quality and innovation. Florent uses minimal intervention vinification techniques in his gravity-fed winery to produce artisanal and lively wines, which display all the rich, complex characters typical of this distinctive terroir.
