- Domaine Thomas Gérard et Filles is a family domaine of 12 hectares managed by Gérard Thomas and his two daughters, Anne-Sophie and Isabelle. Located in Saint-Aubin, he grows not only in this appellation but also in Meursault, Puligny-Montrachet and the Chassagne-Montrachet appellations too. Murgers des Dents de Chien is a Premier Cru vineyard high on the Cote d'Or escarpment in the Saint-Aubin commune. It is positioned directly above the Montrachet and Chevalier-Montrachet Grand Cru vineyards on the scrubby Mont-Rachet hillside, providing a good cool site for growing Chardonnay.
The Premier Cru vineyards of Saint-Aubin are located in a valley perpendicular to the Cote d'Or, and Murgers des Dents de Chien is at its entrance, high on the hillside. The wine's interesting name means "walls of dogs' teeth", and refers to the the many jagged walls that dot the landscape here. These are often used as vineyard boundaries, or as retaining walls for terraces.
An excellent dry wine with mineral and citrus notes. Has classic butter with green nuances on the palate and shows excellent minerality.
