Jean-Michel, born in 1955, grew up surrounded by wine-growing and chose it as a career. After studying in Beaune and the University of Dijon, he joined his father in 1974 to operate the domaine.He started his own business in 1981, purchasing vineyards and planting new vineyards in Hautes Côtes de Beaune in particular – plots that had been farmed before the phylloxera crisis.
The estate reached 12.5 ha and, in 1992 Jean-Michel and his wife, Yvonne, built a new winery at the entrance to the village. Respectful of the traditions the estate is also looking to the future and thus has increased quality over time. Nowadays and since the early 2000s, Stephen, 5th generation of winemakers in the Maurice family, is taking over and makes his own mark with delicate and elegant wines. He focuses on more natural winemaking processes and uses less and less chemical teatments on the vines and in the wines too. Naturally talented, his wines reflect his passion and love for the art of making and sharing wine together. A wonder!
