      Product information

      Domaine Bonnardot is a family estate in Bonnecontre, near the Citeaux Abbey. The family has a long heritage of winemaking in the area dating back to 1470, but in more recent memory it was Elizabeth who graduated from studying enology in Beaune, studied with Jules Chauvet and began to practice more natural approaches to her winemaking. Today her son Ludovic, who first began experimenting with natural winemaking as a teenager with grapes from an old parcel of his grandfather's, now guides the winemaking at the estate. He prefers not to add sulfur to his wines. After completing his education in winemaking, he returned to his family lands in 2005 and began to convert the 15 hectares, situated between Pommard and Santenay, to purely organic farming. 

      Situated in the southern area of Cote de Beaune, the vines are planted on clay, chalk and stony soils, and average around 45 years-old. The 1.17 hectare plot is named "Les Saunieres" and are hand-harvested in mid-September. Traditional Burgundian vinification in wooden tank is used with half of the grapes de-stemmed, pre-fermentation for four days followed by 25 day maceration and one month of spontaneous fermentation with temperature control. Rested on lees for one year and aged for one year in 228L oak casks averaging 1-6 years-old.
