Domaine Gerard Thomas Puligny-Montrachet Le Trezin
Puligny-Montrachet is regularly referred to as the greatest white wine commune on earth providing the best expressions of Chardonnay. Le Trezin is located high on the hill overlooking the village itself, with a total of 0.57 hectares of vines planted between 1973 and 1978 bordering the Premier Cru vineyards of Sous les Puits and La Garenne. The wines have a beautiful, floral bouquet and are well-balanced with great complexity.
Gerard Thomas has been in control of this Saint-Aubin estate since 1982 and is now helped by his two daughters, Isabelle and Anne. There are 12 hectares of vines, including a 1.82 hectare holding in the well-known Premier Cru Les Murgers de Dents de Chien. Gerard has been expanding the domaine in Cotes de Beaune since the 1980s through acquisitions in Chassagne and Puligny-Montrachet. Harvesting is by hand with careful handling of complete bunches to avoid oxidation and several passes through the vineyard during harvest to ensure optimum ripeness. All the whites are barrel fermented with 25% new oak used. Ten months in cask follows, with regular lees stirring to add depth. It is without doubt that Gerard Thomas is one of Saint-Aubin's finest producers.
