The history of Burgundy vineyards goes back centuries and has been influenced not only by monks and abbeys, but also by the Pontifical court (Avignon) and royals who, for a long time, contributed to the reputation of the wines produced here. The hedonistic Louis XIV did not try to hide his fondness for Romanée wines. Legend has it that Madame de Pompadour tried to acquire the vineyard, but was beaten to it by Prince de Conti... Indisputably the jewel of the Côte de Nuits, the Vosne vineyard counts several legendary crus such as Romanée-Conti and Tâche. Gaudichots is one of the Vosne-Roumanée 14 premiers crus (which also counts 8 grands crus). Stamped with richness, finesse, complexity and harmony, Vosne-Romanée symbolises, above all, elegance. Their dominant mellowness is balanced by discrete tannins and a touch of acidity. These fleshy, highly persistent wines are highly aromatic, with unique perfumes of cherry, strawberry and undergrowth.

General : The «bio» designation covers certified wines produced by biodynamic or organic methods, sustainably produced wines, and «environmentally friendly» wines that are not officially certified. These designations apply to recent vintages (the date of certification, if known, is specified in the estate description). See the blog article for more information on this designation.
Biodynamic : The «biodynamic» designation is used for all estates certified as using biodynamic methods, as verified by one of the two official bodies, Demeter or Biodyvin. All wines produced by biodynamic methods are also certified as organic. This designation applies to recent vintages.
Organic : The «organic» designation covers all estates certified as using organic methods, as verified by one of the bodies approved by the Ministry of Agriculture, such as Ecocert. This designation applies to recent vintages.
Sustainable : The «sustainable» designation covers all estates certified as using integrated or High Environmental Value (level 3 Environmental Certification) techniques. This designation applies to recent vintages.
Evironmentally friendly : The «environmentally friendly» designation refers to estates practising environmentally friendly wine-growing techniques, but that have not opted for certification or who are still in the process of converting to organic agriculture or biodynamics. These estates may have adopted biodynamic principles (non-certified) or simply no longer use chemical products. This designation applies to recent vintages.
Natural : Wines which are produced without any added sulfur (or almost any) and with no other inputs. However, given that there is no official body to issue the natural wine label, it is based on winemakers’ statements. This designation applies to recent vintages.
