The domaine was establiehd in 1954 when the Geantet and Pansiot families joined together via marriage
The current winemaker, Vincent Geantet took over the running of the domaine from his father, Edmond, in 1982
Over time, they have acquired more vineyards, but still with only a total size of 12 hectare today
All their wines (Bourgogne to Grand Cru) mature in 30% new oak, with a vivid fruitness character derived from the long, cold, prefermentation maceration
Charmes-Chambertin is the crown jewel of the domaine, the only grand cru wine from vines planted almost 60 years ago

In the book "The Great Domaines of Burgundy", Remington Norman and Charles Taylor MW describes that "the Charmes-Chambertin sums up Vincent Geantet's style perfectly: rich and fat with explosive flavour and a complete, succulent texture; it comes from the finest part of Charmes, a gentle bosse adjoining Griotte-Chambertin where the soil is redder and less deep".
