The tiny domaine has been in operation since 1993; starting with 1.9 hectares of family land in Gevrey-Chambertin.  The winery “Jane et Sylvain” was officially created in 1999.  The domaine expanded with new appelations such as Gevrey-Chambertin 1er Cru Fonteny et Bourgogne.  The Domaine has been certified “bio” or organic since 2003. Presently the domaine covers 4.3 hectares over the following appelations:

GEVREY-CHAMBERTIN 1er CRU FONTENYS      0,30ha

GEVREY-CHAMBERTIN                                       2,52ha

CÔTE DE NUITS-VILLAGES                               0,67ha

BOURGOGNE                                                       0,74ha

BOURGOGNE PASSETOUTGRAIN                      0,47ha

Alhough Gevrey-Chambertin is the largest appellation in the cotes de nuits, we certainly have one of it’s smallest domains.  Their wines are in high demand, and we are starting with a small allocation of  their Côtes de Nuits-Villages.  This is sourced from a unique parcel – next to the village vineyards of both Gevrey-Chambertin and Fixin, it is on the top of the slope, and sits above an old quarry.  Specifically, it is right next to Fixin “Queue de Hareng.” Although everyone talks “terroir;” this tiny-domaine making miniscule quantities of wine using strictly organic practices, sourcing from impeccably maintained and ideally located vineyards truly stands out.

The Domaine farms using only organic practices to ensure that the grapes, that will be hand-harvested, are healthy and vibrant.
