Maurice Gavignet

A magnificent estate, solid know-how and meticulous care for each of their wines is what clearly distinguishes Maurice Gavignet from other wineries.


History

At the beginning of the 19th century, Honoré Gavignet, winemaker at Domaine de la Romanée Conti, founded his own Domaine in Nuits Saint Georges.

Honoré transmitted his passion for wine to his son Maurice Gavignet. The father and son pair developed the business within the family property, the current headquarters of the Estate. Now in its fourth generation, the family-owned winery today is headed by Arnaud Gavignet.



Cultivation

Their cultivation practices are geared towards respecting the soil and vineyard. After all, giving birth to a great wine requires producing grapes of extreme quality. Their vineyard is entirely harvested by hand.

Vinification revolves around a simple idea: to promote maceration and extraction in order to optimise concentration and endow their wines with a rich and elegant structure.

A controlled fermentation profile with controlled vinification temperatures contributes to the expression of their wines. After bottling, the wines age under the vast vaults of their cellars to develop powerful red fruit and blackberry aromas.



Vineyards

The Estate has developed and expanded over the generations.

The plots of Nuits Saint Georges, Nuits Saint Georges 1er Cru “Les Chaignots” and Morey Saint Denis 1er Cru “Les Millandes” were the first acquired.

The Domaine’s appellations were then expanded to include plots of Bourgogne Pinot Noir, Bourgogne Hautes Côtes de Nuits at a place called “Les Dames Huguette” and Gevrey Chambertin.

Over the last decade, the Domaine has grown with vineyards on the Côte de Beaune at Monthelie, Santenay, Savigny les Beaune and Pommard. This is how the Domaine becomes one of the pearls of the Côte d’Orien vineyard.



Cellars

Their wines are vinified and aged in their cellars, Rue Félix Tisserand, at Nuits Saint Georges, by their Cellar Master who takes special care in working the extraction to promote all the expression and typicality of the different terroirs.

Their wines age in French Merrain oak barrels for 18 months and their cuvées contain 25% to 100% new barrels depending on the appellation, which gives their production a unique style.
