Jean-Jacques and his family escaped the rat race of Paris to bring up their children in Saint-Aubin, Burgundy, around the family vineyards. Part artist, philosopher and vigneron, Jean-Jacques approaches the farming of his vines with complete respect for nature and rejects the industrial practices of his neighbours.

 

Minimal interference with the natural growth of the vine, miniscule yields and no additives during fermentation or élévage allow Jean-Jacques to produce a strikingly pure range of terroir transparent natural white and red burgundies that are virtually unknown only because production is so small.

 

This humble man will tell you that he contributes nothing to his wines but his modestly belies a deep thinking approach to growing and making wine.
