Producer Note
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 Côte 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.

Vineyard
The 60-year old vines are grown in a Hospice de Beaune parcel, just under the
Meursault 1er Cru vineyard of ‘Les Santenots’ and are planted at a density of 10,000 to
11,000 per hectare. The clay-limestone soils are formed on alluvial stones and produce
rich, textured wines. 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.
Winemaking
The grapes were pneumatically pressed at less than 1.2 bar, in order to preserve the
aromas. The must was clarified by cold settling over 24 to 48 hours, before being
transferred by gravity into French oak barrels. Fermentation took place with the natural
yeast present on the grape’s skin, to obtain the purest expression of terroir. Maturation
on the fine lees lasted for one year in carefully selected barriques of 228 litres, of which
50% were new; the remainder were seasoned barrels of three to five vintages. The wine
was bottled with minimal fining and filtration and only limited sulphur was applied.
