DOMAINE BORGEOT CHASSAGNE-MONTRACHET ‘CHAMPS DE MORGEOT’ MIXED CASE
We remember the exact day that we met Pascal Borgeot. It was January 28 1989. There’s a poster on our wall to mark the occasion. Not the meeting, but the day.
It was a frigid Saturday in Santenay, and the village was festooned in paper flowers to celebrate the feast of the St. Vincent Tournante, a Burgundian tradition honoring the patron saint of winemakers. The festival changes village every year, and the Burgundians take it very seriously, working for much of the year leading up to the event in preparation.
Pascal was 29 at the time, and was building a small domain in the village of Remigny. He was also fixing up an old winemaker’s house that backs onto the Canal du Centre in one of the most beautiful spots in the Cote d’Or. Daughter Coralie, who now makes wine in her own right, was just a babe, and has children of her own.
We were running our hotel-barge Papillon at the time, so we knew lots of people in the barge world. And some of them knew Pascal, because they had moored their barge just behind his house and did wine tastings there with their passengers. So on St. Vincent day, we were taken by friends to meet the Borgeots for the first time.
Since then, over the years, their wines have held pride of place on our lists, both in red and white.
