Back in the days as they were farmers and cherry producers, they started developing the vineyard to nowadays reach 14 hectares (34,6 acres) of planted vines mainly with Pinot Noir but also with Chardonnay and Gamay.
One admirable wine after the other the reputation grows. The wines from the Domaine are exclusively sold in bottles to consumers and at the best tables locally and in nearby Paris.
All the wines are grown with oak, should it be in traditional barrels or in gigantic foudres, however only the Chanvan “Cuvée” unleashed an oaky side. The slow evolution and complexity of our wines directly comes from the attention we pay to the winemaking and winegrowing process.
In 2001 their daughter Magali moves back to Coulanges la Vineuse and immediately takes over the winemaking process. In 2005 she partners with her parents and Arnaud Hennoque joins her not too long after.
Together they develop new “cuvées” such as “Cuvée Coline” inspired by their daughter. It is a blend of César and Pinot Noir. They also start selling on fairs and trade shows. Consumers can still purchase their wines directly from the Domaine in a beautiful family owned arched wine cellar. They are open Monday to Saturday and most Sundays. Do join them to taste wines that are made respecting the tradition to offer the full authenticity of the AOC.
