The leading Premier Cru that the Thomas family make is the 1er Cru la Chateniere which is a wine that has a lime-blossom and dried fruit bouquet and a nutty, peachy fruitiness. There is also an intelligent use of oak with 20% being used in an entirely supporting role.

Until the mid-1990's, the sleepy little village of St. Aubin was rarely visited by the wine-trade as its wines didn't really have a place on most peoples lists and most of the wine (predominantly red) was sold as Cote de Beaune. Geographically, it is a bit out of the mainstream, just off the N6, up a little valley behind the villages of Chassagne. Things changed as the big name white burgundies became increasingly expensive and buyers discovered that white St. Aubin made an excellent substitute at a sensible price.

Gerard Thomas took over the domaine from his father in 1982 and has built-up a core of top vineyard sites since then. He is ably assisted by his two daughters, Anne-Sophie (now the winemaker) and Isabelle, producing top class St. Aubin and Meursault Blagny, the latter coming from a tiny parcel of 50 year old vines with an ideal south-facing aspect. The 1er Cru la Chateniere is fruit-driven but with a zingy raciness and plenty of freshness.
