Jean-Charles in the Wine Advocate

Burgundian producer Jean-Charles has recently had his 2018 vintage reviewed by William Kelley of the Wine Advocate. The wines are a gourmand's dream, as Jean-Charles also owns Auberge de Vieux Vigneron in Corpeau. The restaurant has become a fixture of the area, creating a draw for local and international gastronomes alike, who flock there to enjoy his take on the regional cuisine of Burgundy. His wines go hand-in-hand with the food, as is traditional in Burgundy.

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 raisonĂ©e, 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.
