France - Bourgogne - Demigny
Jean-Yves started with a small holding of basic Bourgogne Rouge and Aligoté from modest locations and nothing but a shed behind the house to work in. Through hard work and considerable skill he has built up a successful business, part vigneron, part merchant, with a properly equipped cuverie and cellar to hand.
To supplement his own holdings Yean-Yves buys grapes from a small number of conscientious growers including one excellent source in Chassagne Montrachet, noted for its well constructed fine white wines
There are few inexpensive white Burgundies to match the quality of his peerless Les Perdrix vineyard. Since 1999 he has also owned half a hectare of Premier Cru Beaune Les Pertuisots where exemplary farming methods have dramatically improved quality each year.
