About the Producer

This family-estate of 12 hectares is run by Gérard Thomas and his two daughters, Anne-Sophie and Isabelle. In addition to Saint-Aubin, where the estate is located, they also produce the Meursault, Puligny-Montrachet, and Chassagne-Montrachet appellations.

A close neighbour of Montrachet, lying between Chassagne and Puligny, Saint-Aubin is a wine-growing village in the southern part of the Côte de Beaune, the heartland of the great white Bourgogne wines. The area covered by the appellation Village includes 30 Premiers Crus Climats. The neighbouring hamlet of Gamay may have given its name to the Gamay grape. The 13th century fortress stands on solid rock from which it seems to draw its strength as the vine draws sap from the soil. The appellation was granted recognition in 1937.

Vineyard and Winery

The white grapes grow on white clays with a high limestone content. The slopes are steep in places and face East or southeast. Altitude varies between 300 and 350 metres.
