Producer:

Information from UK agent Liberty Wines: 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 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 Puligny-Montrachet ‘Les Grands Champs’ is aged for 11 months in one to five-year-old French oak barrels. Laurent uses 25% new oak, adding texture and richness to this classic Puligny. 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 Chassagne-Montrachet 1er Cru ‘Clos St. Jean’ comes from the domaine’s prime vineyard site and is aged for 11 months in 100% new French oak. All the wines are perfectly balanced with consistently well integrated oak.

Vintage:

2020 was a good, disease-free vintage, with warm and dry weather throughout late spring and summer. Harvest was slightly early, due to the favourable conditions in August, and the Chardonnay was picked at optimal ripeness. The 2020s are close in style to 2019, with excellent balance, very good texture and structure.
