AOP SANTENAY & CHASSAGNE MONTRACHET
The family estate created in 1992, is located in SANTENAY, on a vineyard of 13 hectares.
The wine estate is present in SANTENAY of course, but also on the cities of CHASSAGNE MONTRACHET and PULIGNY MONTRACHET.
The winery has modern facilities for vine growing and vinification, but Philippe and Jean Christophe remain very attached and respectful of the traditions that have made Burgundy famous.
Since the quest for quality is their constant concern, the whole process of making wines, from the work of the vine, is the subject of great attention. That is why they always use old vats, oak barrels for winemaking and wine ageing.
