The vineyards is right next to the most famous producers of Puligny Montrachet. This fine wine offers amazing value for money and is only made in very small quantities,

The day-to-day running of this fine domaine is now in the highly capable hands of Gérard’s two daughters, Anne and Isabelle. Their technical training has resulted in fresher, purer wines with more precise flavours.

Gerard Thomas has been in control of this Saint-Aubin estate since 1982 and is now helped by his two daughters, Isabelle and Anne. There are 12 hectares of vines, including a 1.82 hectare holding in the well-known Premier Cru Les Murgers de Dents de Chien. Gerard has been expanding the domaine in Cotes de Beaune since the 1980s through acquisitions in Chassagne and Puligny-Montrachet. Harvesting is by hand with careful handling of complete bunches to avoid oxidation and several passes through the vineyard during harvest to ensure optimum ripeness. All the whites are barrel fermented with 25% new oak used. Ten months in cask follows, with regular lees stirring to add depth. It is without doubt that Gerard Thomas is one of Saint-Aubin`s finest producers.
