Viticulture and winemaking have been part and parcel of civilisation for many centuries. Wine is not only an age-old reflection of culture, lifestyle, and conviviality, but also the noblest of drinks and the product which most links us to its terroir (or geographical origin) and the people who make it. Chassagne-Montrachet is a very privileged appellation where winegrowers are duty-bound to do their very best. The Domaine Jean-Noël Gagnard clearly shares this search for excellence. A style of wine, a lifestyle.
