Caroline's blog •  
Viticulture and winemaking have been part and parcel of civilisation for many centuries.
Wine is not only an age-old reflection of culture, life style, and conviviality, but also the noblest of drinks and the product which most links us to its terroir (or geographical origin) and the people who make it.
Chassagne-Montrachet is a very privileged appellation where winegrowers are duty-bound to do their very best. The Domaine Jean-Noël Gagnard clearly shares this search for excellence.
This quest is complicated by the fact that there is obviously no one single way of looking at things. In any event, we will only ever be humble interpreters of our terroir's multiple facets.
Our natural preference and basic philosophy is to make wines of finesse and elegance. Our expertise, experience and passion are all devoted to these two words.
Last but not least, let us not forget that the pleasure of wine lies in tasting it rather than knowing about it!
