Les Grechons is an excellent site, located at the top of the hill on the same white marl soil as neighbouring Corton-Charlemagne. The sunny aspect gives plenty of ripe, exotic fruit character, while the soil and relative altitude bring an intensely mineral finish that really grips the palate. This would humble many a more famous name.

About this WINE

Maison Gautheron d'Anost

Maison Gautheron d'Anost

Maison Gautheron d’Anost is a young and promising winery located in Meursault, Burgundy. Founded by Bastien Gautheron, the estate follows a non-interventionist approach to winemaking, emphasising the connection between terroir and vineyard.

The vineyards are primarily organic-certified, with holdings in Savigny and Hautes-Côtes de Beaune. Bastien also collaborates with other organic winegrowers to source grapes. His winemaking philosophy involves simple vinifications, short macerations, and aging in barrels.

Notable wines from Maison Gautheron d’Anost include the Bouzeron ‘Les Louères’ (Aligoté), offering velvety fruit with lemon and greengage aromas; the Saint Romain ‘Les Perriéres’ (Chardonnay), a zippy and mineral wine; and the Hautes-Côtes de Beaune (Chardonnay), a delightful balance of citrus fruit and weight.

The Ladoix appellation is designated for red and white (from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay respectively)  wines produced  in the commune of Ladoix-Serrigny in Côte de Beaune of Burgundy

Red wines are in the majority (three-quarters) . Some of the Premier Cru vineyards of Ladoix-Serrigny are part of the Aloxe-Corton AOC of the neighbouring village rather than of Ladoix AOC, and vinified and sold as Aloxe-Corton Premier Cru.

There are 11 climats within the Ladoix AOC that are designated as Premier Cru vineyards:

  • La Corvée , Le Clou d’Orge , La Micaude, Basses Mourottes, Hautes Mourottes (Red & white Wines)
  • Les Buis, Les Joyeuses, Bois Roussot (Red wines only)
  • Les Grêchons, En Naget, Le Rognet et Corton (White Wines only)

The climats located within the commune of Ladoix-Serrigny but are classified as Aloxe-Corton Premiers Crus (red wines only) are:
Clos des Maréchaudes,  La Maréchaude , Les Petites Lolières, Les Moutottes,  La Coutière, La Toppe au Vert.

The Grand Cru appellations of the Corton hill are overlapping in some areas, and are shared among three communes; Pernand-Vergelesses, Aloxe-Corton (major part) and Ladoix-Serrigny. Hence some of the Corton and Aloxe Corton vineyards which partially fall within Ladoix-Serrigny may be used for both red and white wine.

Chardonnay is often seen as the king of white wine grapes and one of the most widely planted in the world It is suited to a wide variety of soils, though it excels in soils with a high limestone content as found in Champagne, Chablis, and the Côte D`Or.

Burgundy is Chardonnay's spiritual home and the best White Burgundies are dry, rich, honeyed wines with marvellous poise, elegance and balance. They are unquestionably the finest dry white wines in the world. Chardonnay plays a crucial role in the Champagne blend, providing structure and finesse, and is the sole grape in Blanc de Blancs.

It is quantitatively important in California and Australia, is widely planted in Chile and South Africa, and is the second most widely planted grape in New Zealand. In warm climates Chardonnay has a tendency to develop very high sugar levels during the final stages of ripening and this can occur at the expense of acidity. Late picking is a common problem and can result in blowsy and flabby wines that lack structure and definition.

Recently in the New World, we have seen a move towards more elegant, better- balanced and less oak-driven Chardonnays, and this is to be welcomed.
