There are many "lieux-dits" (or "named places") in the Morgeot appellation. Their wines may all be sold under their own names as long as the conditions of independent harvesting and vinification are met. If not, they are sold under the "Morgeot" name.
Jean Noel Gagnard handed his eponymous Domaine to his daughter Caroline Lestimé in 1989. She had studied business in Paris, before returning to the village to take over the reins of the family estate, and had to handle male chauvinism at its most rampant. Nonetheless, she has followed her own convictions, and enhanced (rather than diminished) the reputation of this fine producer. In the vineyard, she uses no fertilisers or herbicides, but has not taken hold of the biodynamic bible.- James Halliday
Excellent clear pale colour, good fruit weight with a sunny banana touch. Chiselled classy mineral finish, impressive for a vineyard which is an integral part of Morgeot. The clay gives weight to the finish as well, excellent persistence.

The whites are full-bodied, powerful, and fat, with aromas of almonds (green or toasted, depending on the age of the wine), ripe apples, white flowers, and honey, The finish is remarkably long.
The reds are deeply colored, full-bodied, and often quite fleshy, with classic aroma of cherry or kirsch and blackcurrant. Their firm structure is reminiscent of a wine from the Côte de Nuits.
