Description

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.

Vineyard & Vinification Note

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 absolutely essential for making great wine.

The harvest is done by hand. As soon as they are cut, the bunches are brought to the vat room and put whole into the pneumatic press. The juice goes from there to the underground cellar via gravity flow and is put into oak barrels, 30% of which are new. The wines age there under ideal conditions for 12 months after alcoholic and malolactic fermentation. Starting in 2005, Jean-Marc decided that the wines would benefit from longer ageing. They now spend 6 months in stainless steel vats before bottling for improved stabilisation and efficient natural clarification

Burghound Tasting Note

Citrusy green apple scents precede punchy and well-detailed middleweight flavors that possess very good density before concluding in a clean, very dry and highly refreshing finish. This should drink well early for its crunchy fruit while offering better than average depth for the genre. 87 Points, June 2023.

Food Pairing

Great partner to fish, shellfish, white meat, and blue cheeses.
