Jean-Yves's cellar is in the small hamlet of Demigny, which sits just on the Northern border of the Saône-et-Loire department in Southern Burgundy.
This is a small domaine, which manages 8 hectares of vines, 4 of which are owned by the family. Maybe its an overused statement, but Jean-Yves is truly a man of the vineyard. His journey in the wine business gave him the fundamental belief that working as naturally as possible, without the usage of chemicals in the vineyard is crucial to producing great fruit. As of 2014, the wines are now certified organic. To say he is careful and meticulous, is an understatement. He is one of the most self-effacing winemakers I have ever met in 20 years in the business.
La Chaume is a 1.25 hectare plot of 28 year-old Chardonnay vines, planted on marl in the commune of Rully. La Chaume presents a gorgeous nose of apples and hazelnut and is bright and structured on the palate. A truly outstanding wine, drinking well now and aging well for a decade in the cellar.
