Our field is very eclectic. We are fortunate to be able to cultivate very different parcels, from the Côte de Beaune from Chassagne to Santenay, to the Côte Chalonnaise, and from the first growths to Bourgogne Aligoté. Each wine is different and has its own specificities due to the so varied terroirs in our beautiful region. The rule is that the basement gives us back what we give it. All the work done on the vines allows the grapes to give us the quintessence of their climate: Santenay village on deep clay soils will be rich and silky, Mercurey Premier Cru white, set on a very calcareous and rocky soil, will give off more lively and sliced aromas. Every wine is important. We attach the same concern and have the same rigour to each appellation.
How do you find yourself a winegrower in Chassagne-Montrachet when you are a restaurateur in Paris? Sometimes chance does things right. Of course, you must love wine and Burgundy. When one day in 2010, I get a phone call from a friend who asks me: "Chassagne, it's interesting?", I answer "Of course, we're having a tasting?". "No, it's the vine," he said to me. I don't understand, then one thing led to another, I see that there may be an opportunity to restore a domain that is close to being abandoned. The work is huge, but the climates are of high quality, and then what a chance to reach Burgundy. early 2011, the step is taken. Since then, it has been necessary to pull up, replant, clean, equip and surround oneself. In 2013, Jean-Baptiste ALINC, an oenologist by training, joined the estate to support me in this adventure thanks to his knowledge, his know-how and his energy. Year after year, we do everything we can to improve.
To be a winegrower is an honour, coupled with a stroke of luck when you're not in the seraglio. If one day I had been asked if I would like to be a winegrower in Chassagne-Montrachet, I would have laughed. Of course I'd like it like a lot of other dreams. I never thought it would ever be possible. I think that if you're so lucky, you have to do your best to be worthy of it. You can't make good wine without good grapes. To have good grapes you have to give a lot to the vine. She knows how to give it back to us. I love wine from all regions, if it is well made, with love and passion. There are no great wines and small wines for me. Good wine is the one you love. And wine is also, and above all, a story of sharing and conviviality. An aligoté with friends and a good sausage can often be more enjoyable than a grand cru eaten alone. My oldest memories of wine go back to my summer holidays in Burgundy. There was red wine at the table. I'm not at all sure it was of high quality. But we were allowed one little drop in our wormhole. Fresh spring water. That reddened water was the best drink.
