Domaine Claudie Jobard
 

Claudie Jobard boasts a proud viticultural and vinicultural heritage as her mother, Laurence, was the head winemaker at Joseph Drouhin; and her father, Roger, founded one of the region’s top vine nurseries. Roger developed the family Domaine in the 1970s, buying and planting land in Rully. Most of the vines are now over forty years-old and producing excellent wines. Claudie assumed charge of the estate in 2002 after graduating with her oenology degree and changed the direction of the Domaine by bottling under her own name instead of selling to négociants. The plots are managed with emphasis on soil life as a Certified Organic Farming Estate.

Domaine Jouard
 

In the southern part of the Côte de Beaune, Chassagne-Montrachet shares with Puligny the uncontested title of the prince of the world’s dry white wines: the divine Montrachet (pronounced “Monrachay”). This fine, broad hillside brings out the very highest expression of the two Burgundian grapes - the Pinot Noir and the Chardonnay, which grow here side-by side - such is the complexity of the region’s soils! 

Paul Jouard is the 7th generation winemaker in this storied family growing vines on the estate. He has been making the family wines since 1992 and is a throwback to the Burgundy winemakers of old. 

Paul has a state-of-the-art cuverie and cellar, but he says technology cannot make good wine. What technology allows him to do is to better organize his work so he can maximize the flavors given by the grapes and the terroir. So, instead of changing the juice and stamping it with his winemaking technique, Paul gives the grapes and the soil every possible opportunity to express themselves to the fullest.

Paul harvests all of his grapes by hand using an innovative conveyer system to fill and empty his tanks of red wine. This decreases the need to pump the wines so they retain more fruitiness and liveliness. For his red wines, Paul likes a long maceration and fermentation process in order to get the fullness of flavors out of the Pinot Noir grapes.

Paul and his wife, Delphine, have two young children. When not taking care of the family, they enjoy gourmet food to pair with their wonderful wines.

Domaine Alain & Christiane Patriarche
 

If there is a key word dear to the hearts of Christiane and Alain Patriarche, it is Passion, which they passed on to their daughter Maud.  Along with her partner Marc, the couple took over the family succession since 2012.

Passion for the Meursault terroir, nestled in the center of the Burgundy vineyard—its rugged hillsides and its vintages bath in an ideal climate. Passion for the Chardonnay grape variety is so renowned, production of these great white wines benefit from exclusivity – a unique fact in Côte-d'Or! The landscape is a coast with bumpy sides and holes from old quarries, extending over three communes.

 

Passion for winemaking and maturing great wines, which they like to share with enthusiasts, loyal to their Domaine.

Domaine René Leclerc &
Francois Leclerc

 

This multi-generational family domaine follows traditional vinification and elevage with grapes pressed utilizing an antique, manual wooden press. The juice then undergoes a short cold maceration. Fermentation is completed with all indigenous yeasts in traditional vats. The natural wine is aged in neutral barrels for 18 months.

René Leclerc and his son François are a good example of the family character of Burgundy domaines.  In recent years, René Leclerc has gradually passed on the winemaking and management of the domaine to his son, François who trained in both France and the United States.  Francois married to an American from Macon, Georgia and they have two beautiful children.

 

He works closely with his dad because he wants to continue the successful winemaking style that Rene has perfected – both for the Rene Leclerc wines as well as for his own wines with the Francois Leclerc label. The domaine consists of 12 hectares in and around Gevrey-Chambertin. As with all generational shifts in Burgundy, François also brings personal experience from his work in Oregon and has an independent vision of what his vineyards can achieve.

Domaine Tortochot
 

Chantal Tortochot-Michel has revived this renowned two hundred year old Burgundian family estate in Gevrey-Chambertin since taking over from her father, Gabriel, in the late 1990s. Her skillful winemaking has produced a range of lively, inexpensive, fruit-laden wines which are accessible, young and yet promise to develop well over several years.

“Tortochot makes some of the best wine in Burgundy. They make quality wine year in and year out. They have known great success. I really like their wines.”

                                        - Robert Parker

Gevrey-Chambertin has a rare and unique Terroir thanks to the alluvial fan that comes from a valley situated just behind (to the west) of Gevrey called “La Combe de Lavaux”. This glacier melted many millions of years ago and spread the rich top and sub-soil layers out through what is now the town to the plains beyond.

 

It is not surprising to find that 9 of the 33 Grand Crus come from this village including the famous Chambertin as well as 26 Premier Crus ! The town also boasts over 100 wine estates!

 

The Domaine Tortochot is one of the more famous estates in the area and has been in the Tortochot family for four generations. When talking about her style of Pinot Noir, Chantal explains: “Here we make a more traditional Gevrey Chambertin, with lots of fruit, strong tannins and good acidity."

Domaine Hubert Bouzereau-Gruere et Filles
 

Since 1970, Hubert Bouzereau-Gruere has been the principal winemaker continuing as the seventh generation in his family legacy of winemakers.  Along with his wife Marie-France and four daughters, they care for the vines and hand harvest the grapes. Each bunch of grapes is visually inspected and sorted by hand.  The most concentrated and best tasting fruit is kept for the family name. The lesser quality fruit is sold to a negociant, allowing the estate to secure positive cash flow while ensuring the family keeps its quality standards intact.

Honored as “best young winemakers in the Côte de Beaune” - daughters, Marie-Anne and Marie-Laure who are certified winemakers, now lead the family estate becoming the eighth generation of winemakers in Meursault.

The average age of their vines is almost 45 years old, but they do not feature “old vines” on any of their labels. The family’s work is of the highest quality.

Domaine Hubert Camus
 

Domaine Hubert Camus, founded in 1732, is located in Gevrey-Chambertin, Burgundy. The holdings cover 12 hectares of vineyards in different appellations, with a huge range of Grands Crus. Joseph Hubert Camus, considered the Master of Grand Cru, operated the domaine since 1974. He was the founding president of the Burgundy Interprofessional Wine Bureau.

 

Melle Camus took over leadership from her father Hubert Camus and has embraced the biodynamic approach to viticulture: Fertilizers are never used, the soils are ploughed. and harvesting is done manually. The grapes are de-stemmed and then pressed through an old vertical press. Malolactic fermentation is done in bulk before putting the wine into barrels. The aging is done in oak barrels and lasts from 14 to 18 months. Filtration is not done.

Domaine Dujardin
 

Committed independent winegrower, Domaine Dujardin uses traditional and natural winemaking methods.

The culture of the vine is done in reasoned control (by limiting the contributions of chemical fertilizers, weedkiller and insecticide) in order to maintain the necessary vigor of the plants, without seeking overproduction, detrimental to the quality of the wines and the environment.

The harvests are entirely manual to ensure qualitative sorting.

The style is fine and elegant, emphasizing perfume and purity of fruit. An address to watch. 

      - William Kelley, The Wine Advocate 

Ideally located in the heart of the Côte de Beaune, in Monthélie, not far from Meursault (21 Côte d´Or), the Domaine Dujardin has an area of 8 hectares of vines producing Burgundy’s great wines, red and white.

A family estate now managed by Ulrich Dujardin, who strives to pass his passion on to his children every day. Domaine Dujardin produces renowned appellations.

Domaine Joillot
 

The estate was established in 1929 by Robert Joillot – a winegrower and plant nursery owner in Pommard. Robert Joillot married Marthe Popille and heir son Georges took over from his father. Sadly, Geroges died suddenly in 1971, leaving behind his son Jean-Luc Joillot, only ten years old, and his wife Simone Joillot (née Porcheray) They were left the difficult task of taking care of the farm by themselves.

By 1981, Jean-Luc Joillot, the third generation at the estate, took up the torch in collaboration with his mother. They worked six hectares of vines under the new label “Domaine Jean-Luc Joillot”.

After marrying in the 1990s Jean-Luc Joillot and his wife Lydia Joillot (née Dessaint) developed the estate by exporting their wines and acquiring a plot of Pommard 1er Cru “Les Charmots” and a plot of Pommard 1er Cru “Les Epenots”. Now a fourth generation has taken over the family wine business.

The wines of Pommard are colorful, powerful and known for aging well. But depending on the year, they can be good to drink rather than keep – the best solution is to do both! Once vatted, levels of alcohol, acidity, tannins, polyphenols, etc. are monitored as indicators that contribute to the quality of the vintage.

Andre Dupuis Wines

Andre Dupuis owns a 20-hectare family estate located in the northernmost part of the Mâcon region, just south of the Côte Chalonnaise. Along with his two sons they operate The Dupuis family estate.  The estate is Certified as “Sustainable Agriculture” (Agriculture Raisonnée™). They seek to preserve the soil for their heritage by avoiding the use of any herbicides, pesticides, or fertilizers. 

They utilize the distinctive practices of putting straw between every second row. This practice brings natural “food” and better microbiological life to the soil. It also allows for less tractor use resulting in decreased compaction and more aeration of the soil. Improved soil conditions encourage the potential for quality fruit.

The Dupuis family prunes the vines to leave only one fruit-producing branch per vine, resulting in less production, but more concentrated fruit. The estate is an excellent example of a quality-oriented family producing incredible wines at an affordable price point.

Domaine des Vercheres
owned by Andre Dupuis

Domaine des Vercheres is a family Domaine located in the northernmost part of the Macon region, just south of the Côtes Chalonaise. Owner Andre Dupuis is now succeeded by his two sons, Rémi and Jean-Christophe. The 10-hectare Mâcon-Villages vineyard, in the communes of Mancey and Royer, is planted entirely with Chardonnay on south-east facing slopes at an average altitude of 250 meters. The vines average 30 years of age.

The soils in the two largest parcels are a mix of clay and limestone, covered with small white pebbles. In one parcel, the subsoil is deep and cool clay, which makes for a slow ripening process and the development of complex pit-fruit and citrus flavors. The other parcel has an almost pure rock soil where the vines’ roots go deep into the limestone. This parcel warms up early and provides ripe, generous Chardonnay fruit with a distinct minerality. The exceptional quality of the Domaine des Vercheres Mâcon Villages is the result of the blending of the fruit from these two vineyard sites.

Dupuis pere pioneered the use of the “Guyot simple” pruning method, then more common in the Côte d’Or, but not in the Mâcon region. By using this method, which leaves one fruit-bearing branch (cane) on the vine, the viticulter is able to reduce yields and obtain more concentrated fruit. More recently, the Dupuis sons have planted grass in every second row and placed straw in the others in order to control erosion on the steep slopes and preserve the health of the soil.

The Chardonnay grapes are quickly pressed in a state-of-the-art pneumatic press, in order to extract all the fruit and aromas while avoiding any bitterness. The juice ferments (using only native yeasts) and is aged entirely in temperature-controlled, stainless-steel tanks. The wine is assembled and bottled after the malolactic fermentation completes in the spring. It is the perfect all-purpose white wine, served chilled but not ice-cold. The Domaine des Vercheres Mâcon-Villages represents outstanding value in Burgundian Chardonnay.

Château de Chaintré

Château de Chaintre is owned and operated by Jean Paul Paquet of Domaine Paquet. In preparation for their son Yannick joining the family business, Jean Paul and his wife Monique expanded the size of their vineyard holdings. The perfect opportunity arose in 2003 when they purchased the Domaine in Chaintré, nestled in the old vineyard of Château de Chaintré— it features 6 hectares producing Macon-Chaintre and Bourgogne-Chardonnay. All these wines have been matured in the purest Bourgogne tradition.

The story of the Château itself started at the beginning of the 12th century when it belonged to the Seigneurie des Chaintré, one of the oldest families in the Mâcon region.

In 1675 the Oratoriens monks planted the first vines on the ground of the Château de Chaintres. Of all the terroirs in the region, they chose this one for the richness and the quality of its grounds.

The Château has been redeveloped and now comprises of a number of privately owned flats.

Domaine Paquet

Jean-Paul Paquet’s family has worked the soil in the Mâconnais region of Burgundy since his grandfather settled there in 1955.  Jean-Paul’s father was eventually able to purchase a small seven acre domaine in the heart of Pouilly Fuissé in 1971.  Jean-Paul and his wife took over in 1978 and have purchased several additional plots over the years.  In 2003, when their son Yannick joined the family business, they decided to increase the size of the domaine again and purchased a vineyard outside the Chateau de Chaintré from which they produce Macon-Chaintré and Bourgogone Chardonnay.  Yannick has since taken over the estate entirely, and runs it together with his wife, Ophélie.

The Davayé commune lies in Southern Burgundy, 1,000 ft. above sea level, just north of the famous towns of Pouilly and Fuissé in the Mâconnais. Here, rolling hills abut the Soan river and the shale soils are dominated by limestone and clay. Because of this, Paquet’s Saint-Véran shares more similarities with Pouilly-Fuissé than with wines produced in the southern part of the AOC where sandy, acidic soils tend to produce leaner, more simple wines. This wine is produced from vines averaging 25 years with favorable exposure.

Chablis & Côte Chalonnaise

CHABLIS
Marcel Servin

 

Winemaker Francois Servin, who is the 20th+ generation of his family Servin to make Chablis wines, took his personal vines from the family Domaine, Domaine Servin, to create Marcel Servin Chablis. The name, Marcel Servin is in respect for his father, grandfather and great grandfather who were all named Marcel.

The trademark of these wines is the incredible complexity they achieve in the nose and palate, with long and fresh finishes. Because of the longer elevages and careful malolactic fermentations, they are accessible a little sooner, but can also age gracefully in the cellar. These are elegant on the palate, but densely flavored and buttressed with well-integrated acidity. The fruit here tends to range from ripe, fresh citrus to pear and green apple.

As far back as the 16th century, the monks of Saint Martin cited the Servin family as vineyard owners in Chablis. Since then, successive generations have perpetuated the family's tradition and ever-evolving expertise as vineyard workers, coopers and winemakers.

Note: “Domaine Servin” wines are different in that they are the personal family wines, and are only made in years when the wines are “perfect” according to winemaker Francois Servin.

Domaine Chofflet

Passed down from son-in-law to son-in-law for the past two generations, Jonathan Brunot took the helm following Denis Valdenaire in 2019. On this occasion, the winery returned to its original name: Domaine Chofflet. Jonathan continues the domaines dedication to sustainable farming that Denis started over 30 years ago.  Denis was an early devotee of culture raisonnee practices. They prune severely in the spring to eliminate excess growth. It mitigates vine disease to keep treatments to an absolute minimum.  The soils are plowed in all of the domaine’s vineyards to break up surface roots, train the vine’s roots to penetrate deeper and foster a healthy nature ambiance.

 

All this is accomplished with five full-time employees, with the addition of seasonal workers depending on the needs of the vines. 

"We produce healthy grapes in order to make fine wine"

At an altitude of 370 meters above sea-level, we have a magnificent amphitheater which provides us with a unique microclimate. Our 14-hectare vineyard is located solely on the Givry appellation. Thus, we can exploit its tremendous potential.

We practice sustainable viticulture (certified in 2008), in order to respect the terroir and allow the vines to fully express themselves.

Our values are respect, quality, trust and sharing. All our wines have their own personality and come from our vines. We favor short maceration in concrete vats and long maturation in French oak barrels. We never more than 25% new barrels because, for us, oak should not mask the wine but accompany it.

Domaine de Montorge

This family wine domaine was revived in 1972 by Charles and Jean-Joseph Flandre and covers 12.87 hectares of vines classified exclusively as Montagny 1er cru and situated in Montorge. The vines lie in some of the finest climats of the Montagny appellation including Les Chaniots and Les Coères. The Flandre family ages its wines with the utmost respect for tradition.

Jean-Joseph’s son Yann took over at the domaine in 2014 and has shown his commitment to perpetuating the family’s savoir-faire with the addition of another outstanding climat: Le Montorge, a monopoly wine which is aged in 500-litre barrels. Yann is very respectful of biodiversity and, in 2019, he made the decision to convert all of his vineyards to organic agriculture.

Since the 1980s, the Flandre family has opted for a planting density of 8,000 vines stocks per hectare to create more space between the vines thereby improving ventilation, reducing the risk of disease and ensuring more comfortable working conditions for the winegrower.

 

Yann has also planted fruit trees and hedgerows in and around his vineyards (vitiforestry) to improve biodiversity. He use grass cover, which helps combat erosion and enhances the aeration and life in the soil.
