The Producer

Rémi Jeanniard started his own domaine in 2003, after about 20 years of working at his father’s domaine, and upon the retirement of his father. The family winery was divided between Rémi and his brother. Rémi's inaugural vintage was premiered in 2004.

The estate of Domaine Rémi Jeanniard currently encompasses communes in the heart of Côte de Nuits - Morey-Saint-Denis, Gevrey-Chambertin, and Chambolle-Musigny. The vines in the domaine, being at least 50 years old, are of older than average age amongst those in the region. As such, Rémi tends to them with meticulous care, and abstains from chemical fertilisers.

Rémi practices green harvesting and handpicks his harvest selectively in order to increase the quality of the must in his grapes. The grapes are carefully sorted and destalked, and fermented with only natural yeast. To produce wines true to the terroir, bottling is done without fining.
