About the Winery: Domaine Arnaud Baillot is located in Beaune, the heart of the Côte d’Or.
Passionate about the diversity of wines the Burgundy region has to offer, Arnaud Baillot has teamed up with his wife Laure (grandaughter of Domaine Hudelot-Noëllat in Chambolle-Musigny) to produce a spectacular range of villages and crus Burgundy wines. Arnaud has been hands-on all the way, from selecting the origin of the grapes, overviewing the winemaking process, to choosing the type of barrels and ageing time for each individual wine. In 2017, Arnaud and Laure acquired a small vineyard in Côte de Beaune, making their first step in having their own Estate produced wines at Domaine Arnaud Baillot.  Their philosophy is to respect and promote the complexity of the Burgundy wine region while producing terroir-driven wines.
Today, they now present their fourth vintage of their limited edition small-batch Burgundy crus.
