Story

Christophe Gillo began his wine journey with but a few small parcels of land in Saint-Aubin and La Roche Pot acquired by his Great Grandfather in the early 1900’s. He studied enology at the University of Dijon, and from there grew his passion for wine making in the heart of Burgundy. The Domaine du Bout du Monde was established in 1995.

Vineyard

The vines are planted on soils of mixed clay and limestone, right above the Pommard’s famous “Epenots” plot and and Beaunes “Clos des Mouches”. Only 3% of the area is planted to Chardonnay, which thrives on the rocky grounds. The vines average at 16 years of age.

Vinification

Grapes are manually harvested. They undergo a slow, monitored fermentation at low temperatures in barrels, with regualr stirring.

Tasting Notes

The color is light cold, with a clear and bright hue. The nose shows subtle notes of pineapple, iris and a touch of roasted honey. The mouthfeel is fresh with a sharp acidity balanced by mineral notes of chalk and dry stone, giving way to a long finish.

Food Pairing

This wine sits well with French flavors such as frog legs, or other light meat proteins such as grilled prawns or salmon tartare.
