This Grand Cru white Burgundy is from the very top of the tree in quality terms. Made in totally miniscule quantities (Jean-Marc shares a few rows with his brother Bernard which they both inherited from their father, Albert). He manages to make about 3 barrels in an ordinary harvest.

Jean-Marc, now ably assisted by his daughter, Caroline, is really back on form. After a run of tragedies in the early 1990’s (when he lost his wife to a tragic illness and, shortly after, an old friend and employee was killed in a tractor accident) Jean-Marc has rebuilt his life and has re-emerged as one of the leading lights in the village of Chassagne.

Using only indigenous yeasts for the fermentation, maximum lees-contact prior to the first racking, 15% new oak casks and, above all, early bottling in September, this father and daughter team have managed to achieve a range of whites that exhibit a purity of rich fruit (coupled with a mouth-tingling freshness) that is rare to find.
