Damien and Liselotte Gachot have run their 10 hectare property near Corgoloin in the Cote de Nuits area of Burgundy since 1993. Corgoloin is about half way between Dijon and Santenay.
Their Bourgogne Passetoutgrains is an unusual wine for the area as it is a blend of Pinot Noir and Gamay.
The Bourgogne Passetoutgrains appellation permits the blending of the traditional Burgundy grape, Pinot Noir with the traditional Beaujolais variety, Gamay. The usual mix is two thirds Gamay to one third Pinot thus giving the wine overtones of cherry and plums that you normally associate with Gamay and a slight mushroom aroma coming from the Pinot.
They also produce a number of Burgundy wines including a fine premier cru Nuits Saint Georges "Les Poulettes" and an Aligote.
