Jean-Charles in Burgundy Report

Jean-Charles has recently been profiled in Bill Nanson's Burgundy Report. Nanson praises the domaine, saying: "A more than competent range of wines here – all very correct and reflecting their origins – despite such a diversity of labels. There is much to enjoy…" We've long championed these wines as excellent examples of their appellations at friendly prices, and it seems that the press agrees!

The Fagot family has been located in the small village of Corpeau since 1860. Just outside Chassagne-Montrachet, it is located near some of the most prestigious vineyards in the Cote de Beaune, so it would be fair to say that wine is in the family’s blood. Jean-Charles is part of the 5th generation of Fagots in the area and the third generation to own vineyard acreage in Chassagne-Montrachet. On his estate vineyards, Jean-Charles employs lutte raisonée, a method of growing in which chemical intervention is employed only when necessary. The wines are vinified traditionally and naturally, utilizing oak foudres and 12-14 month long aging periods in the Fagot cellars.
