Managed by Agnes, the estate is located in the heart of Burgundy,
on the Hautes Côtes de Beaune. The vineyards extend over
the Côte de Beaune and the Hautes Côtes de Beaune.

My family has owned a parcel of land in the Auxey-Duresses appellation since the 1950s. Since acquiring the plot, my forebears left it under the stewardship of various tenant winegrowers. My parents ultimately decided to sell it… However, to avoid losing this heritage I decided to work the land and become a winegrower myself. I had just finished business school and I knew nothing about vines… I returned to studying and to on-the-job training. The first vintage was in 2001.

The vineyard extends over 8 hectares of the following appellations:
- Auxey-Duresses red and white (more than half of the estate)
- Burgundy
- Pommard
- Chassagne-Montrachet
- Saint- Aubin 1er Cru Perrière.

I divide my time between the vines, the cellar and marketing.
