Nathalie and Emmanuel Grand, two wine and vine enthusiasts, created a 10-hectare winery, and the 2018 harvest marked the beginning of the estate's conversion to organic farming, with a view to obtaining the organic label with the 2021 harvest.nnThe philosophy of Domaine Grand is based on simple values: respect for the land, the terroir, the grapes, the wine and the people, this has been the watchword at Domaine Grand for the 9 generations of winegrowers who have run their vineyards. The conversion to organic farming requires high standards, rigour and passion, which are the key to success in order to fully express the fulfilment of our work in the creation of our wines.
The history of the estate began in the 17th century with Antoine and Claudine GRAND, who at the time owned a few hectares of vines while practising mixed farming. In the 40's, René GRAND, Emmanuel's grandfather, converted the estate entirely to viticulture and specialized in the sale of bottled wine. Then Emmanuel's father and uncles in turn expanded the estate in the 1970s to reach a total surface area of 25 hectares. Emmanuel joined his family in 1997 and vinifies the GRAND wines... In 2011, Emmanuel meets Nathalie, daughter of Arboisian winegrowers, with whom he shares his life and his passion for vines and wine. Finally, in 2015, Emmanuel and Nathalie create their 9.5 hectare wine estate which is in the process of being converted to organic agriculture.
Vintage 2019Between three picks, two old friends came to help us to overcome our clay-limestone soils. Colossus with a well-structured profile, humble, patient and beautiful as gods... Two Comtois horses landed in Ménétru, to work on the old two plots of Savagnin, under the appellation Château-Chalon. We were very keen to know what our parents had experienced. To be frank, the elders smiled to see us return to the methods ancestrales?! On these hillside vineyards, there was absolute silence. Not a sound, zero stress. Just these horses in the middle of ploughing and their incredible pulling power. It was a unique moment, out of time. In spite of all their strength, they did not succeed at first to tame our dry, stony and tough soils! It took them three passes to remove the soil from our vines. But they succeeded, as a good Comtois ! Let's come back to this 2019 vintage...Two frost episodes, the last one at the beginning of May, damaged 4.5 hectares of Chardonnay. Fortunately, our Trousseau and Savagnin were spared. The summer was very hot with some stress on some Savagnin on the hillsides. The grapes were small, but luckily the rain came back at the end of August with 80 mm, followed by three beautiful weeks until the harvest! The harvest, thin but of excellent quality, has a good balance between sugar and acidity, and the 2019 cuvée will have some pep!
