(71) Saône-et-Loire

The Jeannin-Naltet estate covers 8.5 hectares, exclusively on Mercurey, including 7 hectares classified as Mercurey 1er Cru, over 3 climates, 3 different terroirs, including the Clos des Grands Voyens en Monopole. We mainly produce reds (90% of the production), from the only pinot noir grape variety, and vinify each of our parcels independently. Fundamentally attached to the notion of terroir, we seek to highlight the different facets of the Mercurey appellation. Although vinified and matured strictly in the same way, our three Mercurey 1er Cru wines have very different identity characteristics, which can only be explained by the nature of the terroirs where they were born... Engineer by training, and after 10 years of career in industrial optimisation, Benoit Eschard takes over the estate in 2013, with the desire to make this unique parcel known and magnified.

Our story


The short story is that of Benoît Eschard, a young executive in a hurry, who, after 10 years of career in several large groups, is asking himself the question of the meaning of his professional activity, the meaning of his daily life... He is in search of meaning, time, authenticity... The little story is therefore this reconversion that led Benoît to leave Paris and a comfortable professional situation, to come and settle in Mercurey with his family, learn the profession of winegrower, and take back from his uncle one of the best parcels of the appellation, an under-exploited nugget, soils to reveal. Being a winegrower is hard, but it's a profession that makes so much sense! As for wine, it's passion, connection, sharing, pleasure! What a chance to be at its genesis today in the very beautiful appellation of Mercurey!
