About the Wine

The Cellier aux Moines of Givry is a unique group of historical buildings that were originally constructed by Cistercian monks in the 11th century. Today the estate is owned by former CEO of the mega luxury brand LVMH, Philippe Pascal. Pascal has completed a full renovation of the estate transforming it into a state-of-the-art facility while maintaining the historical esthetic of the original buildings.

The estate is equipped with a gravity-fed winery and became the first certified organic estate in Givry. Cellier also employs biodynamic practices and stopped using herbicides and pesticides in 2006.

Pascal has brought in some elite talent to oversee the winemaking at Domaine du Cellier aux Moines. The immensely talented winemaker, Guillaume Marko, has worked at the best of the best in Burgundy. His resume includes Domaine de la Romanée Conti, an estate that has been producing the best Pinot Noir's in the world for a long time; and Arnoux-Lachaux, who is quickly becoming one of the best producers in the Cote de Nuits.

The Domaine du Cellier aux Moines consistsprimarily of the 5 hectares of the Clos du Cellier aux Moines, one of Givry’s historic Premier Crus, planted with Pinot Noir. The Pascal family selected with great care and acquired several small plots of white wine grapes, in order to offer a wider range of wines. In 2007 a plot in Mercurey was acquired called “Les Margotons”. In 2012, the Domaine took over three more Premier Cru plots in the Côte de Beaune, located in Santenay, Chassagne-Montrachet, and Puligny-Montrachet. In 2017, it expanded to Montagny Premier Cru.

Domaine du Cellier aux Moines is a great estate in the making. It won't be long before we start to talk about du Cellier aux Moines as one of the best in Burgundy. 

Tasting Notes: 100% Chardonnay. 


Reviews

Both fliny and funky (slight reduction) this is a sophisticated white for Santenay, an appellation better known for its reds. Lovely interplay of delicate creaminess with lemony freshness, then a very clean, elegant finish. From biodynamically grown grapes. Drink or hold. ~93 James Suckling
