Jean-Paul and Monique Paquet set up their eight-hectare estate above the village of Fuissé in 1989, and are delighted that their enthusiasm has passed to their son, Yannick, who joined the family business in 2005 after studying viticulture and oenology.
The wines show fabulous concentration and texture, thanks to the Paquets’ know-how and painstaking work in both the vineyard and the cellar.
Produced in the traditional Burgundy style,with entirely manual grape harvesting and pneumatic pressing techniques. 70% of the elevage is conducted in stainless steel tanks, with the remaining 30% in oak. Both are thermo-regulated. Yeasts are naturally-occurring to maximise the flavours of the terroir.
A wine of a golden-green colour which is rounded and fruity on the palate. Demonstrates excellent floral notes of acacia, with hints of vegetable, aniseed and liquorice.
An elegant wine, equally at home with fish, game, pork or goat's cheeses.
