This vineyard, located just above the RN 74, next a beautiful row of trees lining the route, has very stobny soil, and some of the oldest vines in the commune, as it was one of the fist to be replanted after phylloxera. Notes from Allen Meadows' Burghound: "[This domaine has] a policy of releasing wines after several years in bottle and sometimes, after several decades. The history of the domaine is an interesting one and in a sense, is a microcosm of Burgundian succession issues. The domaine was originally founded by Alexandre Gaunoux in 1885 and the vineyard holdings were slowly accumulated. The first was the parcel of Grand Epenots, followed by the Rugiens in 1940 and the Renardes in 1957. Other bits and pieces were added here and there and include the Pommard 1ers of Arvelets, Charmots and Combes as well as four different parcels in Beaune. Michel Gaunoux started at the domaine in 1957 and worked there until he passed away in 1983. His wife knew little about running a domaine but rather than give the 7.5 ha of prime old-vine vineyards to other extended family members or sell out, she decided to operate it herself along with the domaine's long-time cellar master."
