Located in the Cote de Nuits region of Burgundy, Domaine Gallois is a small boutique Estate that has been owned by the Gallois family for four generations. The estate is comprised of 4 ha spread over 11 parcels and seven climats.
Today the estate is run by Dominique Gallois, who is a relative newcomer in Burgundy. Before working at the Domaine he studied catering in Paris and ran his own restaurant for six years. His winemaking philosophy is all about respecting the nature, terroir and grapes as much as possible by minimising the use of chemicals and by maximising the use of natural fertilisers and mulching. Traditional winemaking with minimum intervention is the main rule.
As Dominique says, "The quality of a wine depends above all on terroir, the age of the vine and weather conditions. Even the best of winemakers will not produce a great wine if he does not help nature to give him good grapes."
