OUR HISTORY

« Those who plant quality, harvest loyalty »

The Domaine Francois Gaunoux is a renowned Cote d’Or, family estate of about 10 hectares still privately owned and controlled by the family. We are proud of the quality and the age of our vineyards. We plant our vines to reach full maturity which enables us to produce approachable and complex wine.

At the Domaine, our knowledge and skill in winemaking is vital, but above all we have to have the highest quality grapes. The art of our wine is acheived by maintaining a balance between the spirit of the Domaine and the evolution of our techniques.

the vineyard’s quality

The grapes are picked exclusively by hand. Vinification is done using modern, winemaking material. The grapes are de-stemmed 100%. The cuvaison of the red wines is done using traditional methods and varies from 20 to 25 days depending on the vintage.

Stainless steel tanks are used with automatic internal monitoring and thermo-regulation by computer. Pressing is done by pneumatic press. After fermentation, the wines are aged for 16 to 18 months. The wines are then filtered and bottled.

PROFILE

CLAUDINE GAUNOUX

Domaine François Gaunoux is now managed by Claudine Gaunoux, daughter of François Gaunoux. She grew up around the winery and vineyards officially joining the family estate in 2000.

Claudine is invaluable. Proud of the quality and working every day in her vineyards, she loves the closeness with nature and tranquility. It reminds her of her heritage and gives her a tremendous sense of freedom.

a family estate passed down from generation to generation

The Gaunoux family has been living in Côte d’Or since the 16th century. François Gaunoux has been working his vines since the age of 15. François is the son of the famous Henri Gaunoux, a winemaker from Pommard. An avant-garde winemaker, he knew how to combine modernism and tradition. A philosophy which Claudine upholds today.
