Founded after the last war by André Thomas, Gérard took over the 12 hectares of vines in 1982. He is supported by his daughters, Anne and Isabelle at their small estate at Saint Aubin, immediately behind Puligny and Chassagne-Montrachet. 

The small 'Champ Tirant' vineyard is on the west side of the village and the fruit from here helps make wines that are pleasingly soft while retaining a good crisp acidity. Barrel fermented, 25% new oak is used followed by ten months in cask during which time regular lees stirring adds a good depth of flavour. The resulting wine has ripe citrus and fresh peach aromas while on the palate there's just a touch of caramel richness vanilla creaminess to go with delicate lemon and lime flavours. Beautifully rounded and balanced there's a good persistence of flavour right through to the finish.

It's excellent just to drink by itself and also goes fabulously with all manner of seafood.
