Representing the fifth generation to produce wine on the 6 hectare family domaine, Jean-Marc came to work with his father, Jean, in 1985. Motivated by the same pride in their wines and love of their job, they succeeded in creating a fine reputation even among the most demanding connoisseurs. In 1991, Jean-Marc and his sister, Béatrice, took over from Jean. Their ambition was to perpetuate the family tradition based on the same uncompromising standards. They went from strength to strength, expanding their vineyard holdings to 11 hectares. One of the unusual characteristics of the Domaine is the even division between Pinot Noir and Chardonnay vines.
100% Pinot Noir
Vineyard & Vinification Note
Vineyard: ‘Les Champs Claude’ from 1.4 hectares of vines planted in 1970
Soil: Limestone marl
Jean-Marc’s number one priority is to respect the terroir he has inherited. The soil is ploughed all year long. Organic fertilisers are adapted to the needs of each vine and the specific nature of each plot. Sustainable methods are used to fight against fungal diseases with maximum respect for the vines and their environment. A true believer in the saying that “great wine is made in the vineyard”, Jean-Marc lavishes great care and attention on his vines: March pruning, green harvesting, and manual picking account for quality grapes that are essential for making great wine. The harvest is done by hand
Beautiful notes of red and black fruits. Juicy, fleshy texture. Gorgeous raspberries, ripe cherries and spiced plum. Powerful wine with silky tannins. Delicious Burgundy! Vegan.
This is aromatically similar to the old vines Chassagne with perhaps just a bit more elegance. The palate impression of the sleeker but still quite rich flavors exude a subtle minerality on the rustic and punchy finish that also exhibits just a mild touch of warmth. 87-90 Points, Apr 20
Great with beef, game, poultry and pasta dishes
