Overview

Capitain-Gagnerot is justly famous for its Corton-Charlemagne. Being one of the best producers of this mythic Grand Cru White Burgundy

But up there on the Corton Hill, further along the ridge is, another mythic vineyard Les Grechons et Foutrieres, Les Gréchons, for short. Ladoix 1er Cru Grechons is very much an insider's wine. Sold almost exclusively in the region. 

Year upon year we have tasted the new Grechons at the same time that we taste the latest Capitain Corton Charlemagne. The number of times we have mistaken Grechons for Charlemagne cannot be just chance!

There is a similarity in the minerality, with that Corton Mountain limestone smokiness unlain with honey and white flowers.

We can offer you the chance to taste each of them from the same vintage. So you will know forever AND discover one of the greatest secrets in White Burgundy The 'Little Charlemagne', Ladoix 1er Cru 'Les Grechons'!

Mixed case of Capitain-Gagnerot Whites include:

2 Bottles of Capitain-Gagnerot Corton-Charlemagne Grand Cru 2022
The soil in the heart of Corton-Charlemagne give a unique minerality to one of the great white wines of the world. Smoky and honeyed at the same time with notes of honysuckle and lemongrass, Charlemagne has the structure and balance for aging. We assisted at a tasting some years ago, put on by the Grands Jours de Bourgogne, that featured every single producer of Corton-Charlemagne. That's right. How they organized that, we can't say. But it was, as you might imagine, memorable. And there amidst all the big names was the Capitain Corton-Charlemagne. They don't go in for hype and publicity much at Capitain-Gagnerot. But there in a hall with all of their peers, you could feel their pride and the confidence in their wine.

4 Bottles of Capitain Gagnerot Ladoix 1er Cru 'Les Grechons et Foutrieres' 2022
The Capitain Ladoix 1er Cru Grechons is very much an insider's wine. It's sold almost exclusively in the region (or to those who know Capitain well). Year upon year we have tasted the new Grechons at the same time that we taste the latest Capitain Corton Charlemagne, often standing in the freezing cold when the barrels have been taken outside to cold-precipitate the tartaric acids. The number of times we have mistaken the Grechons for the Charlemagne cannot be just chance! There is a similarity in the minerality, with that Corton Mountain limestone smokiness unlain with honey and white flowers.
