Gérard Raphet is a wine producer located in the Burgundy village Morey-Saint-Denis. It was established in the 1920s and has been family-owned for four generations. The domaine produces regional, village, premier cru, and grand cru Burgundy wines from mature Pinot Noir vines, some over 100 years old. Raphet's top bottlings include wines from the grand cru vineyards Clos de Vougeot, Chambertin Clos-de-Bèze, Charmes-Chambertin and Clos de la Roche. The domaine's vineyard holdings span more than 12 hectares (30 acres) around Morey-Saint-Denis and Gevrey-Chambertin. Vines are tended by hand and farmed by the lutte raisonnée approach, or "reasoned struggle," whereby organic principles are used except under extreme circumstances.
