www.naudin-ferrand.com

The Henri Naudin-Ferrand estate has been built over generations and is now Claire Naudin (henri was her father) who is the head. She took over the Domaine Naudin Ferrand in 1994 with her own vision. She is a strong believer in the principle of wine making that is respectuous of the environment and the local ecosystems. She refuses standardization, prefering a traditional craftswomanship approach.

As woman and a mother she also wants to work for the future, with a carbon neutral winemaking approach. Claire owns and manages 22 hectares of vineyard, some prestigious parcels in Aloxe, Ladoix, Echezeaux, Nuit St Georges, and 80% in regional appellations.  Based in Magny Les Villers and due to of her family history her vineyards are mainly in “Haute-Cotes” appellations.

Chateau Beauregard

www.joseph-burrier.com

The name Beauregard, meaning beautiful to behold, comes from the sight one enjoys from the estate which stands alone in the middle of the vineyards on the rocky cliffs of Solutré and Vergisson, overlooking the villages of Pouilly and Fuissé.

The vineyards are managed to promote microbial life in the soil and to encourage deep rooting of the vines. In the cellar, the wines are allowed time to ferment slowly and to clarify naturally. It is our belief that this method enables the wines to acquire the true expression of their terroir.

Winemaker: Frédéric Burrier

Domaine Dupre

In 1987, Jean-Christophe Dupré took over the family business. Gradually, his focus turned to the family’s 3 hectares of vineyards. In 1992, his brother, Vincent, joined the business and today the domain extends across 18 hectares. They carry out all the tasks required for a successful business, whilst satisfying their commitment to respecting the soil.

Domaine Ballorin & F,               Morey St Denis

(Biodynamic)

 Gilles gave up his day job in 2003 and went to learn the craft of wine production in Dijon and Beaune. He and and his wife Fabienne are behind this new and 100% biodynamically-farmed domaine that began with the 2005 vintage and, already they are carving out a great reputation for themselves.

Allen Meadows of Burghound says, “While Gilles professes to want a parcel or two of premier cru to work with, he freely admits that he’s already been lucky with the vineyards… this is an exciting source of high quality, value oriented wines”.

DOMAINE EDMOND CORNU ET FILS, Ladoix-Serrigny

Always keen to add to its knowledge, always seeking to improve, the Cornu Domaine in the Côte de Beaune gives exacting attention to the nurturing of its wines.

Progress is subject to continual scrutiny. Every week, Pierre Cornu takes part with other growers in blind tastings at which he tries, evaluates and gets to know wines of different vintages. "This exercise gives us a different way of assessing our own production really thoroughly." This sums up the attitude of Pierre and his family: they believe that there is always more to be learned, always something to be gained from more experience, always the possibility of further progress.

Since 2004, Pierre's skills have been complemented by those of his cousin Emmanuel Boireau. Between the two there is perfect understanding. They share the vineyard and cellar work equally.
