“Gorgeous, intense citrus, fresh peach, and pure mineral accents lead to a cornucopia of ripe fruit across a silky smooth texture with the potential to age. The delightful pear and white peach notes are complimented by telltale flinty limestone character and textural weight. Green apple, nectarine, lemon verbena and vanilla bean round out the captivating finish of this enthralling value.” - California Wine Advisors

BACKGROUND
Capitain-Gagnerot is in their 9th generation since founding in 1802, established 13 years after storming the Bastille. Just 6 km north of the city of Beaune along the eastern slope of the famed Corton Hill, Domaine Gagnerot began with making their own wine from their own vineyards. Starting in the wine business 400 years ago as wine merchants in the 1620s, they shipped barrels of Corton, Chambertin, and the like to markets all over Europe. Parcels from the Cotes de Beaune and Cotes de Nuits were added to the Domaine, becoming Capitain-Gagnerot and comprising now 16 fully-owned hectares, with several Grand Cru and Premier Cru parcels. The 9th generation family owner Pierre-François Capitain makes wines that express elegance and purity. The several Grand Cru, Premier Cru and other parcels are largely centered near the winery on the famed Coteau de Corton, featuring marl and limestone soils ideal for great whites, farmed with biodynamic principles, never using herbicides or pesticides. The whites finish fermentation at cool temperatures in barrels (no more than 10% new). Instead of corks, bottles are sealed with the innovative and cellar-worthy “Ardea Seal,” later also adopted by Domaine Ponsot and others to ensure purity.
