Gérard Thomas has been quietly running his estate situated in the quaint, tucked away, Côte de Beaune village of Saint-Aubin since 1982. These days his two daughters, Anne-Sophie and Isabelle, who have been working with him for a number of years, represent the fourth generation of the family to be running the estate.
Their vineyard holdings extend to around 12 hectares in the Côte de Beaune appellations of Meursault, Puligny-Montrachet, Chassagne-Montrachet and Saint-Aubin itself. While they do make a very small amount fo red wine in this part of the world Chardonnay is king and it's their whites on which their repuation is based. Not being based in the neaby prestigious communes of Meursault or Puligny-Montrachet might mean that they go a little bit under the radar compared to some other producers. However, without any doubt, they are the equal of many of their better known peers and, for sure, their wines with the Saint-Aubin appellation are extremely good value for money from this part of Burgundy.
