Collection: Bastien Gautheron

Bastien Gautheron is the first generation of Maison Gautheron d’Anost, a rather new estate, currently based in Meursault, which has recently released its first vintage. Bastien took on his oenology studio at the young age of 15 and up until 2019, in the lead up of setting up his own business, worked at Olivier Leflaive, in Puligny.

Today, the Maison owns small holdings in Savigny and Bourgogne Hautes Côtes de Beaune, both organic certified since 2017. The remainder of the grapes is sourced from trusted winegrowers (mainly friends of Bastien), who work in organic or assimilated organic viticulture.Bastien is part of the new generation of vignerons who are actively trying to transcribe the link between terroir and vineyard thanks to a non interventionist approach to winemaking.

He favours simple vinificatios, with relatively short macerations and fermentations to not over-extract. All the wines are aged in barrels, the oldest are from 2014. The whites are partly aged in large wooden vats of 350L whilst the reds see exclusively barriques with a tiny amount of new oak presence for the top-of-the-range wines (less than 30% in all cases). This results in wines we subtle toastiness lifted by pure delicate fruit. Harmoniously layered with a beautiful ageing potential.
