Domaine Gachot-Monot is a family owned wine estate since five generations back. Today it is managed by Damien Gachot-Monot and his Danish born wife Liselotte. The winery in located in Corgoloin in the Côte de Nuits (Côte d'Or, Burgundy).

Domaine Gachot-Monot has 12 hectares of vineyards in the communes of Corgoloin, Comblanchien and Nuits Saint Georges. The vineyards are managed in what is called 'culture raisonnée' i.e. minimal chemical spraying, but if there is an urgent need some treatments are used. The vineyards are densely planted with some 10,000 vines per hectare. The grape varieties are pinot noir and chardonnay for the major part. Some gamay is used for the Passetoutgrains and some Aligoté for the whites.

The grapes are harvested by hand and vinified in traditional Burgundian open-top concrete vats. Some pigeage (punching down) is done. Temperature is controlled within certain limits. Depending on the vintage and the cuvée the wines are fully or partially aged in oak vats (Burgundian pièces) in the barrel cellar.

Domaine Gachot-Monot makes several different cuvees but since most of the vineyards are in the Nuits St Georges the appellations that is the focus of their production: Nuits St Georges 'villages' as well as premier cru (several different cuvees), Bourgogne Rouge, Passetoutgrain, Bourgogne Blanc, Aligoté and even a crémant de Bourgogne.

They are located virtually half way between Beaune and Nuits Saint George, the two main towns in Burgundy.
